Synopsis

30 patients with persistent muscle weakness following an intra-articular knee injury were randomized to either receive non-thermal ultrasound or sham treatment. The purpose of this study was to determine if ultrasound treatment improved quadricep motoneuron pool excitability as measured by Hoffman reflex (H/M ratio). Results showed no immediate change to H/M ratio following treatment, but signific...
