Identify the Cause of Pain with EMG

emgIf you have been suffering from pain, numbness and/or weakness and have been unsuccessful in determining the cause, it’s time to consider an electromyography study. Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) studies are structured to evaluate for injury or disease of muscle, nerve roots, and peripheral nerves. The studies assess the condition of the nerves from the face, spine and extremities, including the hand and foot. These studies are usually completed jointly and are typically carried out as a workup for complaints of tingling, numbness, weakness or pain.

How does this procedure work? Our nerves control the muscles in our bodies with electrical signals called impulses. An EMG test can detect how your nerves are being affected by pain and can identify abnormal electrical activity in the muscles. An EMG can help those suffering from pain distinguish between muscle conditions and nerve disorders, allowing for more specific treatment once the root of the pain has been determined.

The procedure is conducted by inserting a needle through the skin into the muscle. The electrical activity is detected by this needle (which serves as an electrode). Since skeletal muscles are often large, several needle electrodes may need to be placed at various locations to obtain an informative EMG.

Electrodiagnostic testing is exceptionally safe. A patient may undergo some brief discomfort during or after the exam but there are no permanent after-effects. Once the cause of pain has been determined, your doctor can determine the proper course of treatment.

If you, a friend or family member is suffering from numbness or paralysis, muscle weakness or spasms, please call 732-431-2155  to schedule an appointment with a member of the Advanced Wellness team.
