This is a great video of a baby goat going into something similar to a freeze response. Notice how stiff its back legs go after being scared.

Stiffness coming into a limb is a sign the person is freezing and going too quickly when they are tremoring. Mobilise the person (get them to move and activate their limbs) and/or socially engage the person (ask them to make eye contact, ask them a question) to help bring them out of the immobilisation/ freeze response.
