EMG – Electromyography
We now offer EMG testing (Electromyography), a form of testing used to study muscle and nerve function. This testing can show your physician the level of nerve and/or muscle injury and can help determine the exact location of an injury and give some information as to whether the damage is reversible.
Conditions that EMG testing helps diagnose include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Pinched nerve
- Muscle diseases
Your doctor may order an EMG test if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Decreased sensation
- Tingling or frequent feeling of “pins and needles”
- Radiating pain or burning sensation
- Muscle spasms or weakness
- Difficulty performing daily tasks such as walking, buttoning clothes or handling objects.
