    question for Dr. young or SCI Nurse

    The rehab doctor rouynded this morning and I was not there.. She told my son his legs tremore were a sign of recovery.. I did not get a chance to ask her what she meant and did not want to upset my 14 yo son who told me it was good news.. could someone elaborate this for me?

    Tremor or spasticity? These are two different things. Spasticity is not an indicator of any return. It is an indicator of the end of spinal shock, so that is a good thing as this means it is more likely that true return may be more easily seen now, but the spasticity itself is an indicator of spinal cord damage, not of return.
