Surface EMG is a popular technique in the chiropractic industry, with paraspinal EMG scanning the tool of choice for measuring changes in electrical activity of paraspinal muscles. It’s the perfect complement to use in conjunction with other findings to ensure a more thorough and exact synopsis.
It’s important to note that EMG scanning is purely a ‘motor’ experience- meaning it’s possible to experience greater muscular activity without any sensory pain or discomfort.
Paraspinal EMG scanning is one of the most exciting technologies in contemporary medical practice. This procedure is a valuable tool in detecting and measuring changes in paraspinal muscular activity. Used as a diagnostic tool, surface EMG can only assess muscular activity from a surface level. Using electrodes placed on the body, recordings are generally limited to assess the activity of superficial muscles and cannot really gauge greater depth within the muscular structure. Realistically, surface EMG is great for activating certain muscle groups and identifying the level of muscle fatigue within the body.

It’s hard to deny that the electromyography machine (EMG machine) has forever changed the world of healthcare and medicine, but have you ever wondered about the history behind this incredible piece of technology? The team at AIMedical International decided to take a brief look at the surprisingly long history of the EMG device to better understand where the technology was first conceived.
Electromyography is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them, otherwise known as motor neurons. An electromyographic machine (also known as an EMG machine) is used to conduct the EMG. The electromyography device uses electrodes, which are either tiny needles inserted into the muscles or electrode stickers, to translate the electrical signals that cause muscles to contract into graphs, sound, or numerical values. A specialist then translates this data.
Doctors typically order an EMG if an individual shows signs or symptoms that may indicate a nerve or muscle disorder such as numbness, tingling or a ‘pins and needles’ feeling, radiating pain, muscle spasms or weakness, and difficulty performing daily tasks. An electromyography system can diagnose or rule out conditions such as;
Here are a few facts about the humble EMG system that the AIMedical International team found pretty interesting.
