Introduction: Following spinal cord injury, muscles below the level of injury develop variable degrees of disuse atrophy. Individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) exhibit reduced lung volumes and flow rates as a result of respiratory muscle weakness. Many studies were done to strengthen diaphragm and abdominals using abdominal weights and dynamic curl up. Isolated training of abdominals using pressure biofeedback has been done by very few authors in patients with traumatic paraplegia… CONTINUE READING
