Surface EMG's

Does anyone have citations about surface EMG's for "pain scan" in patients
with cervical/low back pain?  I have seen this being used by
physicaltherapists/ orthopaedists but it appears to be just a gimmic
without any scientific validity.  It seems to be used in patients involved
in litigation.
