Muscles, Masses and Motion: The Physiology of Normality, Hypotonicity, Spasticity and Rigidity
This book reviews current understanding of normal muscle tone and how it differs in spastic, thixotropic and hypotonic patients. The book contains practical advice on measuring the postural system and will be of interest to pediatricians and also to physiologists involved in investigating muscle tone.
