PURPOSE To examine changes in quadriceps and soleus MN pool activity resulting from knee joint effusion over a 4-h period and assess the relationship between the muscles. METHODS A repeated measures before-after trial design was used for this study. Eight, neurologically sound volunteers (age 23.3+/-2.1 yr, height 171.8+/-15.9 cm, mass 65.5+/-17.7 kg) participated in this study.
