News in Review Ryan's Recovery: Bringing Hope to Paralysis New

In 2018 Ryan Straschnitzki, a Humboldt Bronco hockey player, was left paralyzed after a tragic bus accident that injured 13 of his teammates. Another 16 were killed. Since then Ryan has worked tirelessly to regain mobility in his lower body. In November 2019, he flew to Thailand to have a stimulator implanted in his spine. It’s a surgical procedure that could have been done in Canada, but it’s not yet approved. The results, however, are bringing hope to paralyzed people.
