SUMMARY: During sessions of physical therapy, a tetraplegic patient with incomplete spinal cord section at C5 level was found to have changes in the posture post intervention. The therapy consisted of tactile stimulation in specific points of his body to generate reflex patterns of muscle activation (Vojta therapy principles). To
