Injuries to the spinal cord result in scar tissue and cavity formation at the site of injury. Given that scar tissue formation hinders signals from being transmitted to the limbs, which then become paralyzed, this treatment has been shown to create a bridge that allows the signal to be transmitted and partially restore limb function in animal subjects.
