Powerful tool: Scs is a very powerful tool to ne used in certain cases .The goal of teh trail is to make the patient see for themselves if it help thie case or not .The best person to anser is the patient herself she knows how much help she got .Recruiment of later nerve in the spine could most of the time lead to abdonimal vibration , it sound from the discrition that the patient benefit from another trial.
