To accurately assess the gymnast suffered from in complete lumbar spinal cord injury with surface electromyography and isokinetic testing. A total of 200 gymnasts suffered from incomplete lumbar spinal cord injury and treated at our hospital were enrolled. These patients were divided into control group that subjected to routine rehabilitation training and research group that underwent routine rehabilitation training and isokinetic testing. The therapeutic efficacy (manual muscle test (MMT) of the knee muscles, isokinetic testing, surface electromyography test) of both groups were observed and compared. After 12 weeks of treatment, the hamstring peak torque/body weight, quadricepspeak torque/body weight, biceps femoris in tegratedelectromyography (IEMG), rectus femoris IEMG and quadriceps endurance of both groups were significantly improved compared with those before therapy (P < 0.05). Also, the improvement of the research group was markedly better than that of the control group (P < 0.05).Moreover, there was significant decrease in the mean power frequency (MPF) of biceps femoris and rectus femoris in research group, as compared with that of the control group (P < 0.05). Application of surface electromyography and isokinetic testing in the assessment of lower extremities muscle strength and endurance in
patients with incomplete lumbar spinal cord injury could produce more accurate results.
