I note that whenever Brock does not use his canes, he not only holds his arms up high, but also seems to raise the one that is taking a step. Does anyone know if that's just for balance/momentum, or if he has actually learned to make his nerves that command his shoulders to rise also work for his hips to some extent? I've heard of things before where people with a certian paralysis will learn to sort of work around it via peripheral nervous connections.

at the progress Brock has made---I have seen it posted prior to this that he has continued to make progress, but I wasn't expecting this much.  Thanks for posting this video!

A car crash on five years ago claimed the lives of Brock Mealer's father and left him paralyzed from the waist down

Apparently the crash was "On give years ago" and Brock's father had multiple lives.  I'm sure they meant to mention that there was more than one victim.

How come every time I watch one of those videos it gets really dusty in my office and my seasonal allergies that I normally only have in the spring start acting up?
