Re: what does cerebral palsy higher tone mean

I think it means a greater amount of spasticity in the muscles, where the nerves are sending off messages to tighten at such intensity that the muscles are tighter and less flexible than someone with low tone. Feel free to correct me if I've missed the mark.
