Inhibition Neuromuscular

A reduction in neural drive, muscular activity, and or force output due to altered neuromuscular reflex. Alterations in neuromuscular reflex may occur due to increases in muscle length (hypothesis: increased excitation threshold), altered reciprocal inhibition in response to increased antagonist tone, and or alterations in joint motion (arthrokinematics inhibition).
