Abstract

EMG-scanning is a recently developed method for measuring surface electromyographic activity. It is driven by a personal computer and measures the surface EMG activity under standard circumstances in defined muscle areas. By this method the contraction and contracture type of muscle pain causing similar symptoms can be differentiated to provide an adequate treatment and prevent chronicity. Combination of this method with special and general relaxation techniques and the biofeedback mechanism creates a new possibility for the treatment of patients with chronic myogenic pain. In Hungary the method was first applied by the authors in the differential diagnosis of chronic headaches and in the treatment of psychogenic (tension type) head and back pain in combination with relaxation, hypnosis, biofeedback used in clinical psychology. Based on their experience the authors suggest that pain mechanisms can be specifically influenced by therapeutical interventions based on a cause-effect relation revealing diagnostic procedure. By this method patients with chronic myogenic pain may receive effective help during their neuropsychiatric rehabilitation. International data show that this method significantly increases the quality of life of the patients and reduces the costs of health insurance system.
