Electromyographic effect on serum creatine phosphokinase in normal individuals.

Abstract

Seven normal healthy individuals were investigated to determine the effect of needle electromyography (EMG) on serum creatine phosphokinase (CPK) levels. No changes were noted as the result of EMG. Exercise resulted in increased serum CPK activity and persons with large muscle mass showed higher initial CPK levels.
