Short-term synchrony in diverse motor nuclei presumed to receive different extents of direct cortical input.
TLDR
It is argued that factors other than the potency of cortical inputs to motor neurons, such as the number of motor neurons innervating a muscle, significantly affects motor unit synchrony. Expand
Motor unit rate coding is severely impaired during forceful and fast muscular contractions in individuals post stroke.
TLDR
The rate coding mechanism in individuals poststroke during both constant and rapid force production tasks was described to describe and compare the relationships between motor unit and electromyogram measures and force. Expand
Remote Effects of Dry Needling on the Irritability of the Myofascial Trigger Point in the Upper Trapezius Muscle
TLDR
Dry needling of a distal myofascial trigger point can provide a remote effect to reduce the irritability of a proximal myofasher trigger point. Expand
Higher-order power harmonics of pulsed electrical stimulation modulates corticospinal contribution of peripheral nerve stimulation
TLDR
It is reported that the electrical-stimulation-induced force enhancements were correlated with the amplitude of stimulation power harmonics during the amplitude-adapted pulse train, the first demonstration that power at high order harmonics in the frequency spectrum of electrical stimulation pulses may contribute to neuromodulation. Expand
Probable Mechanisms of Needling Therapies for Myofascial Pain Control
TLDR
Clinical and animal studies of remote AcP for MTrPs and the possible mechanisms of remote effectiveness are reviewed and discussed. Expand
Remote Therapeutic Effectiveness of Acupuncture in Treating Myofascial Trigger Point of the Upper Trapezius Muscle
TLDR
It appears that needling to the remote AcP points with multiple needle insertions of modified AcP technique is a better technique thansimple needling insertion of simple needling technique in terms of the decrease in pain intensity and prevalence of endplate noise and the increase in pressure pain threshold in the needling sites. Expand
Spinal cord mechanism involving the remote effects of dry needling on the irritability of myofascial trigger spots in rabbit skeletal muscle.
TLDR
This remote effect of dry needling depends on an intact afferent pathway from the stimulating site to the spinal cord and a normal spinal cord function at the levels corresponding to the innervation of the proximally affected muscle. Expand
Remote influences of acupuncture on the pain intensity and the amplitude changes of endplate noise in the myofascial trigger point of the upper trapezius muscle.
TLDR
Both subjective changes in the pain intensity and objective changes of the EPN amplitude in the MTrP region of the upper trapezius muscle were found during and after acupuncture treatment at the remote ipsilateral acupuncture points. Expand
The effects of stimulation frequency and fatigue on the force–intensity relationship for human skeletal muscle
TLDR
The findings of this study provide guidelines for clinicians and researchers to adjust the stimulation intensity to achieve precise control of force repetitively during the application of FES. Expand
The Kinesio Taping Method for Myofascial Pain Control
TLDR
It appears that the KT application can elevate the subcutaneous space and then increase the blood circulation and lymph fluid drainage to reduce the chemical factors around the MTrP region. Expand
