BACKGROUND Tibialis Anterior (TA) cutaneous reflex (CR) activity evoked following cutaneous stimulation of the plantar (Pl) surface (Pl-TA CR) has demonstrated hyperreflexia and damage of inhibitory mechanisms in subjects with spinal cord injury (SCI) and spasticity. OBJECTIVES To modulate Pl-TA CR and Soleus H-reflex activity with transcutaneous… CONTINUE READING
