However, within several days, this spinal shock will disappear and signs of spasticity will become evident.
Ditunno et al. proposed a four-phase model for spinal shock in 2004 as follows:
It is not to be confused with spinal shock, which is not circulatory in nature.
She also starts experiencing spinal shocks.
Therefore there is a risk of complications from local anaesthetic toxicity (such as seizures and cardiac arrest) and for a syndrome similar to spinal shock.
During spinal shock, the bladder is flaccid and unresponsive.
Softride, which makes bikes without seat posts to reduce spinal shock, now makes an impact-absorbing stem (the part that connects the handlebars to the frame).
The absence of the reflex without sacral spinal cord trauma indicates spinal shock.
Typically this is one of the first reflexes to return after spinal shock.
This clinical pattern may emerge during recovery from spinal shock due to prolonged swelling around or near the vertebrae, causing pressures on the cord.
