Lower-extremity asymmetries and their correlations to disability in multiple sclerosis
MetadataShow full item record
Maintaining balance and muscle strength are common areas of concern for individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). Postural stability is associated with weight distribution asymmetries during quiet stance and leg strength asymmetries in people with MS. People with MS are also known to have higher levels of functional asymmetries compared to healthy people. We examined asymmetry levels in people with MS during weight distribution in quiet stance and the sit-to-stand task as well as knee extensor and flexor strength asymmetries. We also identified associations between asymmetry levels and ...
