Hello!

Deep tendon reflexes are normal if they are 1 +, 2 +, or 3 + unless they are asymmetric or there is a dramatic difference between the arms and the legs.

There are three basic deep tendon reflexes, which evaluate the integrity of your lower neck (cervical) spinal nerve supply. These are known as the biceps reflex, the brachioradialis reflex, and the triceps reflex. Deep tendon reflexes are considered a lower motor reflex.

Take care!
