  5. 5. The ContinuumNo firing High level of Normal Range firing fibers of fibers

  7. 7. Flaccidity CNS etiology: • Cancer • TBI Peripheral etiology: • Brachial Plexus Injury • Trauma • Spinal Cord Injury
  8. 8. The ContinuumFlaccid High level Normal Range firing LOW of TONE fibers
  9. 9. Postures Typical or Normal LOW TONE
  10. 10. Postures Typical or Normal LOW TONE
  11. 11. Movement Typical or Normal LOW TONE
