STUDY DESIGN Electrophysiologic recordings were obtained from low threshold primary afferent neurons innervating lumbar multifidus and longissimus muscles in the anesthetized cat. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to classify sensory nerve endings in lumbar paraspinal muscles and characterize their responses to biomechanical loads applied over a range of durations that encompass those occurring during spinal manipulation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Neural responses arising from the… CONTINUE READING
