In brief: There are surgical

Options, such as tendon transfers.
There are physicians at tgh that i know can do this. However, this will not correct the myelopathy, it will only ease the pain from the spasticity. It may not improve function as well. Have you tried Botox injections? They are very useful with spasticity of you have not tried yet.
