Today you’re physically active. In all likelihood you take for granted the miracle of movement. While you may have the occasional ache or pain, the world is an accessible place for you.
But imagine waking up one day to a physical sensation that starts as a minor annoyance….your big toe feels numb.
Did you pinch a nerve? Sleep on it wrong?
No matter. It will work itself out, right?
What if it doesn’t?
Imagine the next day your leg is numb and soon you’re not able to move it.
Within about 48 hours of that toe going numb you’re paralyzed from the waist down.
Now imagine that happens to you at 15.
