Kinesiologic electromyography (SEMG) is a field specializing in the use of electronic devices to measure the energy of the muscles, to analyze the data, and to display the results. Surface electromyography rests on the practitioner’s understanding of anatomy, physiology, and the instrumentation.

Kinesiologic EMG has many applications, including assessment, treatment planning, evaluation of progress and outcomes, rehabilitation, worksite ergonomic design, sports training, and research. This technology helps differentiate between beliefs about muscle function and actual function, and is used in evaluation and rehabilitation. Kinesiologic electromyography is used with patients and clients by physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, dental professionals, biofeedback trainers, stress management consultants, corporate safety consultants, sports psychologists, arts medicine practitioners, ergonomics consultants, and somatics educators/practitioners, among others. The feedback provided by this technique works best when combined with other therapies. Regardless of how SEMG is being used, a solid foundation in the principles of SEMG is necessary to be effective.

Physical and occupational therapists will benefit greatly from SEMG objective measures that can show chronic muscle contractions, postural difficulties, inadequate activation of muscles, and the like. They have a great need for such data in their assessments, evaluations of patient progress, and discharge planning. In situations where objective data are highly valued, such as with third-party payers, SEMG recordings are invaluable.
