Thread: Lower Thoracic, Conus, and Cauda Equina Injuries: Diagnosis & Treatment

  1. #111
    They have written AIS D on my SO's papers from the rehab, but he says he never got a thorough examination. He only got his reflexes checked and anal insertion at the beginning of his time there (once), it only took a couple of mins. Is this something he should get done? Who would he have to see to perform this, a neurologist?

    A neurologist or physiatrist who specializes in SCI/D would be best. Be sure they have been trained in the proper administration of the ISNCSCI (the new name for the ASIA exam) and ideally, a member of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS)
