Description
This novel session describes the effectiveness of non-invasive, low-risk, neuromodulation techniques to help with neuropathic pain, neurogenic bladder, and locomotor recovery based on evidence from the principle investigators’ human spinal cord injury (SCI) studies Dr. Sheng Li will present his work using BreEstim, combining deep breathing with peripheral electric stimulation to achieve cortical neuromodulation and analgesia in neuropathic pain in chronic SCI subjects in a randomized control trial (RCT). Dr. Argy Stampas will present his findings using transcutaneous tibial nerve stimulation to improve neurogenic bladder outcomes in acute SCI based on urodynamic findings in his RCT. Finally, Dr. Rebecca Martin will present her findings using transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation to improve ambulation in chronic SCI in a cohort study. All presentations will include background information, study design and methods, novel results that may not yet be published, and opportunities for neuromodulation in other populations. There will be time for questions at the end of the session.
