Thread: Spastic control

    Spastic control

    I'm assuming it's pretty common to be able to control leg and core muscles when you have a spasms. I can move my legs all kinds of ways after spasm but after 10-30 seconds it's gone. Can most quads do this?

    It would be great to have you complete your profile so that others can understand your injury level and level of completeness. Also include your age, gender, your location, and how long you have been injured.

    Are you talking about voluntary movement? It sounds like you must be fairly incomplete if that is the case.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    I am incomplete C4-C5. I wouldn't say it is voluntary because I can't control it all the time. I only control it during the tone after a spasm. Once the tone subsides I can't control the muscles any more.
