The objective of this study was to use the electromyography (EMG) via surface and intramuscular single motor unit recordings to further characterize the immediate sensorimotor effects of spinal manipulation and a control intervention using TMS. The results provide evidence that spinal manipulation of dysfunctional spinal segments increases low threshold motoneurone excitability.
