After a catastrophic cycling accident in 2012 while training for her second Ironman triathlon, Monica was paralyzed from the waist down and told by doctors that she was “a complete paraplegic who would never walk again.”
“I endured years of pain but I was determined to have an active lifestyle again,” said Monica. “Through true grit I regained mobility using crutches and braces.” This was in spite of the trauma of two surgeries: spinal fusion surgery following the bike accident and surgery for an injury at her gym in 2014. When her pain persisted, Monica relied on heavy opioids to get through the day and tried injections, electrotherapy and acupuncture, among other things, but none were effective.
In January 2018 Dr. Ellen Lin recommended an HF10 trial, which relieved Monica’s pain. She moved forward with her implant in March that year.
“I no longer have opioids bogging me down and can cycle, swim, spend time with my children and travel with less pain,” she said.
Monica also devotes time to Now You See Me Foundation (www.nowyoucme.org), the nonprofit she founded to assist other elite athletes who suffered disabling injuries while training.
