"I'm still crutch dependent but the idea is to get rid of this," he said.

"This looks very simple and it is very simple, except it's like learning to walk again. I've lost nerves in my right leg and there's certain actions that I can't do. Even the most simple thing. It's hard but it's getting better."

"The whole recuperation path, there's so many aspects to it," he added, showing a series of him retraining his brain to walk unaided, James' massage table and pressure socks, which athletes use to recover from their injuries.
