Pinehurst Surgical Electrodiagnostic Testing: Nerve Tests & Muscle Tests
If you are experiencing numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, muscle cramping, or various other signs and symptoms, one of our Pinehurst, NC pain doctors may recommend an electromyography (or EMG test).
This test, which shows how well the muscles and nerves in your body are working, is fairly simple. A small, thin needle will be inserted in several muscles to see if there are any problems in these particular areas. Your physician will then view and listen to the electrical signals that travel from the needle to the EMG machine and offer an appropriate diagnosis and suggested course of treatment.
