    So this isn't footdrop, it's just high tone? I shouldn't be worried about it?

    Off topic:
    I read regarding males, spasticity is a good indicator that they can ejaculate post sci. So with females, is it more common with spasticity or incomplete injuries that orgasm can be achieved, as opposed to people without spasticity or that are complete?

    I also have a herniated disc. L4, L5, would that be a cause of foot drop?
