As muscles contract, microvolt level electrical signals are created within the muscle that may be measured from the surface of the body. A procedure that measures muscle activity from the skin is referred to as surface electromyography (SEMG).
In surface electromyography (SEMG), the electrical activity of individual muscles or muscle groups is detected, amplified, and analyzed by a computer. The most basic information obtainable from an EMG signal is whether the tested muscle was used during a period of exertion. It provides an objective measurement of overall spinal health by detecting electrical activity in the muscles along the spine (paraspinal electromyography), enabling the chiropractors to screen patients initially and to follow the progress of their treatment.
