ABSTRACT

Objectives To present reviews of studies comparing surface-electromyography (SEMG)values between low back pain group and control group. Methods We searched 8 databases including KoreaMed, Google, KISS (Korean studiesInformation Service System), RISS (Research Information Sharing Service), OASIS(Oriental medicine Advanced Searching Integrated System), Pubmed, Ovid-MEDLINE andEMBASE. After searching, we conducted study selection by using inclusion and exclusioncriteria and quality-assessment. We reviewed the selected studies concerning about thesubject’s measuring position, findings, sensitivities and specificities. Results 27 Studies were searched and reviewed. In static surface electromyography,more muscle activities observed in low back pain subjects than in controls. In dynamicsurface electromyography, the low back pain subjects showed more muscle activites duringflexion, while the control group showed more muscle activities during extension. Fastermuscle fatigue observed in isometric muscle analysis. Conclusions Surface electromyography values will be able to be objective marker for evaluatinglow back pain. Further research is needed to determine additional unified protocolsuch as the type of SEMG and its directions.
