  • Separate three-way ANOVAs were performed with either the data of HS/HM (top) or the data of HM/MD (bottom) as between-group factors and MUSCLE and VIBRATION CONDITION as within-group factors. Separate analyses were performed on the data obtained before or after the proprioceptive training. Furthermore, the data obtained in healthy musicians before and in musician's dystonia after proprioceptive training were compared. The F and p values for the three-way interaction and the main effect of the between-group factor are given. For ANOVAs with significant results (p < 0.05) in the Mauchly's test for sphericity, Greenhouse-Geisser corrections were performed, and corrected degrees of freedom (df) are given (*).
