Needle Electromyography (EMG)

The EMG is traditionally performed after the nerve conduction testing is complete because the needle exam cannot be designed or accurately interpreted without knowing the underlying nerve conduction status of the patient.

A small sterile, disposable needle electrode is placed in several select muscles to evaluate the muscle function and neurological status of the muscle in question. A unique EMG profile is designed based on the patient's presenting symptoms, the results of the focused neurological exam, and the NCV exam results.
