Electromyography (EMG)

EMG is used to evaluate the health of muscles and the nerves which control them to determine the cause of muscle weakness and identify neurologic disorders. Electrodes are placed on the surface of the skin and thin needle electrodes are carefully inserted through the skin and into the muscles that need to be tested. The electrodes record electrical activity within the muscles while they are at rest and during contraction.
