Abstract
Objectives: This study is aimed to evaluate and objectify the therapeutic effect of moxibustion on muscle fatigue recovery.

Methods: To evaluate the therapeutic effect on the muscle fatigue recovery, we compared the fatigue recovery of two groups (non-stimulation group and moxibustion group) by analyzing the EMG and peak torque after strenuous knee exercise of isokinetic contraction.

Results: The median frequency (MF) of the moxibustion group was recovered faster than that of the non-stimulation group. However, the peak torques of both groups were not restored until after 20 minutes. Nevertheless, the moxibustion group’s peak torque was regained higher than that of the non-stimulation group.

Conclusions: We confirmed the therapeutic effect of moxibustion and found that the moxibustion can used as prevention method for musculoskeletal disease.
