What Is Paired Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)?
Paired VNS can help create new neural pathways.
Millions of stroke survivors suffer from continued impairment in their hands and arms at 3 to 6 months following a stroke. This is often called a recovery plateau, which means their condition stops improving. At this point, the problem isn’t in the strength of the muscles but in the brain or the nerves. Research indicates that moving past the recovery plateau requires neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to form new neural pathways.1
