EMG/NCS (Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Studies) are used to measure the health of your nerves and evaluates the integrity of your muscles. This test is extremely helpful for the therapist and your doctor to assess the severity of the nerve damage to determine if surgery is necessary. This test is helpful in cases like; back pain, neck pain, numbness/tingling/burning sensations in the hands or feet, weakness in the leg’s arms or hands, diabetes, and neuropathy. One major example is carpel tunnel syndrome.
