Feedback electromyography is the process of monitoring and displaying to an individual the ongoing contraction and relaxation patterns generated by his or her skeletal muscles. Its objective is to heighten proprioceptive awareness of the mechanism of muscle flexure and to develop voluntary control over dysfunctional, semi- voluntary or involuntary muscle activity. The achievement of musculoskeletal control skills has direct clinical applications in both Physical medicine (neuromuscular reduction) and in the redress of Physiological, Psychometric, and stress- related disorders.
It has long been recognized that chronic muscle tension, a state in which the patient is continually stiff or braced, can be an indication of an ongoing stress response. Myographic feedback can play a major role in improving the patient's awareness of both the objective physiological indications of inappropriate stress response and Mechanisms involved in their generation and maintenance. By learning to Voluntarily control affected muscles; patients can achieve significant clinical improvement. This improvement results from a variety of factors: Firstly when acute or chronic muscle tension directly contributes to the patient's distress, relaxation of the affected muscles can relieve the discomfort. Secondly, the feedback of observable and objective indications of the patient's condition can facilitate the patient's acceptance and understanding of the nature of his problem. Thirdly, the achievement of deep muscle relaxation can contribute to the patient's overall level of relaxation and have significant clinical impact on stress- related disorders. Fourthly, direct control of previously involuntary muscle activity serves to improve the patient's sense of self- control, self- responsibility, and self- image. Another major application of feedback electromyography is in the neuromuscular retraining of Partially to seriously dysfunctional muscles.
