Nerve Repair = More Personal Training Clients

When will it be possible to repair/replace damaged nerves?


An idea I'd love to run past everyone - whether you're on the 'lifting' or 'training' side of the fence :

At some point in the not-too-distant future (I suspect it'll be about 2020, but it doesn't matter all that much), it'll be possible to repair/replace damaged nerves. Think people with MS, paraplegics and so on. Full function restored.

This means that many people who are currently in wheelchairs will become clients for Personal Trainers. Looking to strengthen their legs (which they might not have used for years), as well as add some muscle mass to them.


What do you think - can you imagine this happening; and if so, when? Does 2020 sound reasonable, or perhaps a little ambitious?

Would love to hear your thoughts.
