Nerve & muscle testing / electromyography

To diagnose the functioning and abnormalities of nerves and muscles, electromyography is used. EMG is a diagnostic procedure that may be used along with nerve conduction study to have a detailed understanding of the underlying nerve problems. Electrodes are inserted into the skin through needles. Then the doctor performs the test by asking you for muscle movements. After the results are recorded, needles are removed.

Nerve & muscle testing / electromyography Q & A

Electromyography is a diagnostic test for assessing the nerve and muscle functions of a person. The test also reveals if there is an underlying muscle injury or nerve problem.

During the process, you may feel pinched when the doctor inserts needles into your skin. However, for most people, it is usually not a painful process.

Electromyography is usually a safe diagnostic test. Patients can expect tenderness on the muscle where needles are inserted. Within some time after the test is done, patients can feel normal.

Electromyography usually takes 60-90 minutes to complete. In some cases, it may take a bit longer depending on the case of the patient.
