Our board-certified physicians in physical Medicine and rehabilitation will perform and interpret EMG studies on selected patients. An EMG, or electromyogram, is useful in determining whether or not suspected muscle groups or nerves have been injured. An EMG is a test that measures the electrical activity of your nerves and muscles. The test will consist of two parts: nerve conduction study and needle electrode examination. The test can help determine the cause of muscle weakness, paralysis and spasms, as well as pain in the arms, hands, feet and face.
