Spinal shock occurs following an acute spinal cord injury and involves a reversible loss of all neurological function, including reflexes and rectal tone, below a particular level. Spinal Shock Initially after spinal cord damage there is a period of spinal shock when your reflexes are not present. These reflexes can return anytime up to 3 months, usually between 1 to 6 weeks. Until your reflexes return there is a ‘flaccid’ effect. The loss of spinal reflexes results in flaccid paralysis below the level of your Size: 1MB.
