Doctors measure reflexes during an exam to check the condition of the spinal cord and test various nervous system functions. Furthermore, doctors can identify spinal cord injuries, lesions in the spine, and possible damage to the nervous system through the results of reflex tests. However, not measuring reflexes during an exam can result in the doctor neglecting underlying medical conditions or neurological problems. Thus, autoimmune disorders, genetic disorders, diabetic neuropathy, and trauma could be left undiagnosed and result in serious outcomes including death. 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
