Fig. 7

Methylprednisolone treatment speeds recovery of gait. Locomotor recovery was quantified using the CatWalk system at 2 and 5 weeks after decompression. a Representative footprints of saline- and MP-treated animals at 2 weeks after decompression are shown. b Stride length in the forepaws was only significantly improved at 2 weeks after decompression, without significant changes at 5 weeks. No significant changes were observed in the hindlimbs (cd). Stance phase and swing speed were not significantly affected in the forepaws and hindlimbs of the two treatment groups at any analyzed time point. Dotted line represents naive non-injured animals. Data were analyzed using a two-way ANOVA and are presented as mean ± SEM
