EMG Testing. An electromyogram (EMG) is a test that records the electrical activity of muscles. A neurologist may perform an EMG to locate the source for any unexplained muscle weakness. By examining the electrical activity, the physiscian can deduce whether the muscle weakness is due to any nerve disorders.
When your muscles are sore or weak and you don’t know why, there are a couple of tests that can help give you answers.. One is electromyography (EMG). The other is a nerve conduction study (NCS ...
Electromyography & Neurological Conduction Studies. At Delaware Back Pain & Sports Rehabilitation Centers we use electromyography (EMG) and neurological conduction studies (NCS) to evaluate the health of your muscles and nerves. If you need to have an EMG/NCS done, we can help.
Electromyography, or EMG, involves testing the electrical activity of muscles. Often, EMG testing is performed with another test that measures the conducting function of nerves. This is called a nerve conduction study. Because both tests are often performed at the same office visit and by the same personnel, the risks and procedures generally ...
What to expect-Prior to your EMG. You should arrive for your EMG test with clean, dry skin. Please do not use body lotions, oils, etc. as this interferes with the test and may result in rescheduling and/or repeating the EMG test.
EMG Testing and Other Diagnostic Neurology Services Florida Medical Clinic’s Department of Neurology offers EMG (electromyography) testing to diagnose a variety of nerve and muscle disorders. Electrodiagnostic exams typically consist of two distinct tests: a needle electromyogram to assess nerve activity within the muscles, and a nerve conduction study to assess the motor neurons that […]
An electromyogram (EMG) test detects abnormal muscle electrical activity in conditions such as neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves, herniated discs, peripheral nerve damage, ALS, and more. Find out whether the EMG test is painful, and learn more about related studies.
Electrodiagnostic Testing (formerly known as Electromyography-Nerve Conduction Tests EMG/NCS) – Tests the muscles and nerves to determine where and to what extent damage has occurred. This test aids in the clinic diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases such as: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophies, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) among ...
American Imaging offers diagnostic testing that allows our physicians the tools to clearly determine the exact cause and severity of discomfort, pain, and any nerve damage that may be present. By utilizing the latest state of the art equipment our technologists can provide the most valuable results to our referring physicians.
