About

Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) are often done at the same time to diagnose a number of neurological diseases. An EMG will measure the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contractions.

Peripheral nerves can exit the spinal cord and the muscles in the body with electrical signals. These electrical signals produce impulses and make the muscles react in specific ways.

How It Helps

Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) testing can be helpful in determining the root cause of pain in the neck, back, and extremities.
