Electromyography (EMG) / Nerve Conduction Study (NCS)
At iSpine Pain Clinics, we utilize EMG/NCS testing to help determine if our patient’s nerves and muscles are functioning properly and to localize where symptoms, such as numbness, tingling, pain, weakness and / or muscle cramping are coming from. It is beneficial in identifying nerves and/or muscles that may be damaged.
Your physician may order this testing if you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms in your arm(s) or leg(s):
- Numbness and/or tingling
- Muscle cramping
These test results will help your healthcare provider(s) to determine the best treatment plan for you.
