Steroids

Postby fireblaze » Sun Jul 30, 2006 3:03 am

There was a bodybuilder 6 years. He got paralysed, from an unfortunate car accident. He injected steroids into his lower spine. Eventually he was back to normal in the gym. How could steroids do this?

Can you please give source?
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

Well, as presented by Sleep Paralysis, all paralyses are not permanent. Maybe it was just a fluke?

It depends on the cause of the paralysis. most types can regenerate and movement regained

Are there ant nerve cells in the body that can regenerate?

Neurons can regenerate. But only in perypheral nervous system and very slowly. but axon regeneration can happen.
