OBJECTIVE To investigate the adaptational changes in excitability of spinal neuronal circuits below the level of lesion from spinal shock to spasticity in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). METHODS More than 6 months after an acute SCI, clinical follow-up examinations were paralleled by electrophysiologic recordings with tibial nerve stimulation (M-wave, F-wave, H-reflex, and flexor reflex). RESULTS During spinal shock, the loss of tendon tap reflexes and flaccid muscle tone were… CONTINUE READING
