Influence of body position on fibularis longus and soleus Hoffmann reflexes.

It is widely accepted that Hoffmann (H) reflex amplitudes of the soleus decrease as complexity of body positions increases, but it is not known if this same mechanism of postural control is seen in other ankle muscles such as fibularis longus (FL). Our purpose was to assess if FL H-reflex changed in different body positions and if the adaptations were… CONTINUE READING
