Pre-exercise median nerve (MN) values predict rehabilitative outcome in people with paraplegia

Takeaway

  • Pre-exercise median nerve (MN) values serve as a better predictor of cross-sectional area (CSA) exercise response than presence or absence of spinal cord injury (SCI).

Why this matters

    Establishing MN at admission may give clinicians insight into likely functional outcomes when discussing goals of care and allow for a more tailored treatment approach.
