Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure which is used to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them. EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.

Symptoms that may indicate a nerve or muscle disorder, include:

  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle pain or cramping
  • Certain types of limb pain

Our experts use EMG to diagnose or rule out a number of conditions, including:

  • Muscular dystrophy or polymyositis
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome or peripheral neuropathies
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or polio
