Acrylic Thoracic Spine

Interesting journal article from PLoS ONE, especially since I’m working on gait with a patient with a CVA and we are having issues with initiation. This article helped me think through what is normal and what I’m seeing – now I just need to create the best treatment plan to improve it.

Ceccato J-C, de Sèze M, Azevedo C, Cazalets J-R (2009) Comparison of Trunk Activity during Gait Initiation and Walking in Humans. PLoS ONE 4(12): e8193. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0008193.
