EMG / NCV

Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Studies are electrical tests of specific nerves and muscles to determine the point at which pain, numbness and/or weakness originates. These tests check how well your spinal cord, nerve roots, and nerves are working.

Although only a very low-voltage electrical current is used, and each electrical pulse is less than a split-second in length, there may be some discomfort.

We may be able to share some results of these studies at the time of the tests. The full report will be sent to your doctor within two business days.
