Spinal Cord Injury

#1

Hey guys , so I was diagnosed with anterior horn cell myelitis many years ago. I had muscle paralysis from my neck down…over time I slowly got better…but things like my chest and left tricep in particular just never came back…all the neurologist I see tell me that the nerve damage Is permanent… my left tricep is basically non existent…cant do overhead tricep extension with 5lbs on my left side… does anyone have any experience and/or advice…this all happened almost 10 years ago…I did the physical therapy…nothing seemed to drastically help…if there is any advice you can give me I will greatly appreciate it
