Electrodiagnostic testing and Evaluations

Nerve conduction and electromyography testing (NCV/EMG), is a diagnostic test to examine function of the peripheral nervous system. The nerve conduction (NCV) portion of the testing is performed by stimulating a peripheral nerve or nerves in either the arms or legs and recording the electrical impulse across a specific segment of the extremity. The electromyography (EMG) portion of the examination requires tiny acupuncture size needle electrodes to be placed in various muscles to determine if the electrical signals to those muscles have been altered. By combining the two portions of the examination, a determination can be made regarding the neurological function of the peripheral and or spinal nerves being tested.
