Video: Paralyzed From the Chest Down, Triathlete Takes Second in the Handcycle Division of the Ford Ironman World Championship
Date:12/12/2008

a small, flexible catheter that delivers medication directly into the intrathecal space where fluid flows around the spinal cord.

Following the surgery, Jason's spasms and spasticity decreased drastically. His leg and back muscles relaxed, and he regained control of his body.

"The device has worked tremendously for me," Fowler said. "With my spasms under control, I was able to do everyday things more easily, and I was also able to start training and competing again."

After his motorcycle accident, Jason became a member of the wheelchair racing team at the University of Illinois. Competing on his college team reignited Jason's passion and soon he was setting his sights on increasingly difficult feats. To date he has competed in 140 road races, 29 marathons and 19 triathlons, including the Ironman World Championship. He completed the 2008 Ironman World Championship in 11:29:52 as the fastest American in [the handcycle] division.

Jason's athletic achievements are not representative of the typical ITB Therapy(SM) (Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy) experience. However, his story is inspirational. He is one extraordinary individual who was able to reach a personal goal through the help of this therapy. As you read it, please bear in mind the athletic achievements are specific to this particular individual and are not representative of the typical ITB Therapy patient. As with all therapies, results may vary, and this therapy may not be for you. Talk to your doctor.
