Hi DR Well, I type slowly, but will give you some hope ... hope for me as well mine is C4 -5-6. and my spinal cord is badly damaged upper neck, and yes I am back on the bike I do 4 rides a week..... with all the pain in my shoulder and arm.....I am medical unfit for work , but yes, fissio and bio do helps, for me yes helps a lot with all the spasms, and movability but yes, I believe you have to be head strong , accept your bodies and try to build the nerves up again. My accidents was1.6 years ago. and I am still very weak in my right leg (I had 6 Desert Dash solos) but every 20 km now is a win, just don't go and sit on the couch, and now i realize every km count, you have to work for it with pain, but just do it!!!!! I was paralyzed last year for some time..... and i know how sweet it is to be able to ride my bike again. Lame left leg and lots of pain....still so sweet to be on the bike again. I am so fortunate... Be strong Boet, you will win, it is in your head..
