  1. A study on rectus femoris strength before and after treatment findings on 30 cases based on information in this published paper regarding the potential cytokine inflammation in the myotome from arthritis as so many chiropractors see so much rectus femoris weakness in bad stenosis cases, especially when degenerative scoliosis is involved.
