Abstract

Neural control of muscle force while experiencing muscle pain is not fully understood yet. The idea of a differential modulation of the activity across the entire motor unit (MU) pool is highly attractive. However, while lower discharge rates of MUs during low‐force contractions in the presence of pain have been previously observed, much uncertainty remains regarding alterations of the firing behaviour of higher‐threshold MUs.
