Hi Rachel,
We have a muscle test at T1 to confirm motor function is intact at that level, which is what the motor score is assessing. We make assumptions about motor matching sensory when there is no corresponding motor test (levels T2-L1). A manual muscle grade of 5/5 in the finger abductors (T1) trumps impaired sensation at T1 for determining motor level.
