Electromyogram with Nerve Conduction Study
An Electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction.
A Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) measures how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals.
Commonly Evaluated Conditions: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Entrapment, Pinched Nerves/Radiculopathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Numbness, Tingling, Pain, and Weakness.
Benefits of the test:
Clarify treatment options/prognosis
Determine if surgery would be helpful
