(70) It was concluded that Ia reciprocal inhibition
reduced the muscle power in the pretibial flexors in the natural course of capsular hemiplegia and blocking of Ia afferents from the extensors increased voluntary power of pretibial flexors.

These exercises, through principle of Reciprocal Inhibition
, developed alternate emotional responses towards Mathematics Phobia and was made to be incompatible with it.
It is replaced by the antagonist-contraction which, via reciprocal inhibition
(see section Reciprocal Inhibition
), serves to relax and further stretch the muscle that was subjected to the initial passive stretch.
It is possible that other spinal mechanisms, such as recurrent inhibition and/or reciprocal inhibition
, are responsible for the depression of the H-reflex seen in dancers.

Sherrington's Law of reciprocal inhibition
in muscular contraction states that when a muscle on one side of a joint is contracted, the muscle on the opposite side of the joint is sent a neurological signal to relax or release.
One of the most important characteristics is the failure of reciprocal inhibition
, a normal process in which muscles with opposite actions work without opposing each other.
One of the mechanisms known to be important for the coordination of antagonist muscles is Ia reciprocal inhibition
. Ia reciprocal inhibition
involves a group of interneurons, which are activated through collaterals from descending pathways in parallel with agonist motoneurons and project to antagonist motoneurons .
As possible factors limiting maximal activation in antagonistic muscles during co-contraction including abdominal bracing, the influences of inhibitory systems occurring at both central and peripheral sites, such as dual-task interference and Ia reciprocal inhibition
as well as recurrent inhibition might be considered (Maeo et al., 2013a, b, c, d).
Afterward, I explain my proposed treatment plan, which typically uses a hypnotic/relaxation technique that I will teach and a subsequent behavioral modification program using guided imagery coupled to reciprocal inhibition
and systematic desensitization employed in an in vitro exposure/desensitization process.
