Table 2 Percentage changes in elbow force, biceps medial (BM) and biceps lateral (BL) sEMG during MVC compared to the Pre -S1 session (baseline) recording. Compared to the pre-injection recording, the decreases are marked by (↓) and the increases are marked by (↑). Values are approximated to first decimal point. Dropped out sessions were denoted with NA
