Relationship between soleus H-reflex asymmetry and postural control in multiple sclerosis.

Publication date: Jun 11, 2020

Background: Impaired postural control is a common symptom in people with multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis frequently presents with asymmetric motor involvement. One measurement yet to be evaluated for asymmetry in people with multiple sclerosis is the soleus Hoffmann reflex. Purpose: To measure the soleus Hoffmann reflex between limbs and correlate reflex asymmetry with postural control.Material and methods: 16 participants completed four sessions of Hoffmann reflex testing and one session of balance testing.Results: Multiple sclerosis participants had significantly greater reflex asymmetry (p?=?0.01). The multiple sclerosis group had a significantly lower overall sensory organization testing composite score (p?
