Muscle isolation. (a) Electromyographic tracings of a patient with outlet obstruction defecation and anismus with excessive accessory muscle utilization (pink tracing) corresponding to contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor complex. (b) Electromyography of the same patient following sessions of pelvic muscle rehabilitation revealing significant reduction of accessory muscle utilization during pelvic floor muscle contraction.
