STUDY DESIGN The recording of electromyographic responses from the in vivo lumbar multifidus of the cat, obtained while cyclic loading was applied as in occupational bending/lifting motion over time. OBJECTIVES To determine whether the effectiveness of stabilizing reflexive muscular activity diminishes during prolonged cyclic activity; the recovery of lost muscle activity by a 10-minute rest; and whether such diminished muscular activity is caused by fatigue, neurologic habituation, or… CONTINUE READING
