i’m a C5/C6 injury level.. from these diagrams you can see the movement that i’m ment to have, and how far i have pushed the medical boundaries so far..signals should be getting blocked by the level of the cyst, but they are getting passed the injury site, through physio we are trying to wake up the muscle memory..  slowly both sensation and motor function has been returning.  While in Miami, we visited the Lois Pope research centre, there was a talk on their research into the cure for paralysis, and i was introduced to this lovely spinal cord!! at that point i had to leave the room, its an actual human spinal cord..
