Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity

We provide comprehensive on-site testing and interpretation. If muscles or nerves are affected by injury, disease or another condition, their electrical activity changes.

EMG measures electrical activity in the muscles. Fine needle electrodes are gently inserted into the muscles. Other electrodes are attached to the skin. You may feel a dull ache or pressure. You will be asked to flex and relax your muscles.

NCV measures the time and intensity the nerves need to respond to signals. Recording electrodes are attached to the skin surface with nerve stimulation. You may feel a tingling sensation or experience muscle twitching. EMG and NCV are used together to provide your doctor with a more complete diagnosis.
