To observe and evaluate the foulage therapy efficacy in the treatment of tibialis anterior exercise fatigue in shot putters by surface electromyography and isokinetic test. A total of 120 patients with tibialis anterior exercise fatigue treated at our hospital were enrolled (shot putters). The patients were randomized into foulage therapy group and rest control group, with 60 cases in each group. The model of left tibialis anterior exercise fatigue was built under isokinetic training mode, which was performed before and after treatment. During modeling, surface electromyography was applied to measure each indicator in the passive movement of ankle. There was no significant difference regarding the integral electromyography, maximum amplitude, median frequency and slope between both groups under isokinetic mode before therapy (P > 0.05). After 5 minutes of rest, another test showed profound decrease in the maximum amplitude and gain rate, integral electromyography and gain rate, median frequency and gain rate as well as slope and gain rate (P < 0.05). However, when foulage therapy was performed, the enhancement of the above indicators was significantly higher in the foulage therapy group than those of the rest control group (P < 0.05). Application of foulage therapy could markedly improve muscle fatigue.
