These tests are used to diagnose nerve damage or destruction and to evaluate diseases of the nerves.
Electromyography (EMG) is a procedure that uses an instrument called an electromyograph to convert the electrical activity from skeletal muscles into a visual account or sound. The test diagnoses neuromuscular abnormalities and is used during biofeedback training.
Nerve Conduction Velocity
Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) is a test to see how fast electrical signals move through a nerve. EMG (Electromyography) testing is done by inserting small needles just into the muscle (mild tingle experienced, similar to acupuncture). These tests are often performed at the same time.
Some Conditions That Can Cause Abnormal Nerve Conduction Results Include:
Traumatic injury to a nerve
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy
Distal median nerve dysfunction
Femoral nerve dysfunction
Radial nerve dysfunction
Sciatic nerve dysfunction
Tibial nerve dysfunction
Ulnar nerve dysfunction
