Abstract

Neuromuscular efficiency (NME) is impaired in fibromyalgia (FM). Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment using 100% of oxygen through an oxygen mask. HBOT in FM induces changes in cortical excitability and a secondary reduction in pain and muscle fatigue. However, there are still no direct data indicating changes in muscle fatigue. The aim of this study was to assess whether the reduction in muscle fatigue so far attributed to a central effect of HBOT can be directly detected by means of non-invasive sEMG as a change in NME.
