Deep tendon reflexes: root values

"1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 "  

  •     S1-2: ankle jerk
  •     L3-4: knee jerk
  •     C5-6: biceps & supinator jerks
  •     C 7: triceps jerk
  •     C 8:  finger jerk

 The reflexes can be remembered as in a nursery rhyme.


One, two-- buckle my shoe; Three, four-- kick the door; Five, six-- pick up sticks; Seven, eight-- shut the gate.
