The Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic (EMG) Clinic

For diseases of nerves and muscles

The Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic (EMG) Clinic

Electrodiagnostic medicine is the study of the diseases of nerves and muscles.  If you have been referred to our clinic, your doctor has recommended an EMG test to see if your muscles and nerves are working right.  The results of the tests will help your doctor decide what is wrong and how it can be treated.
 
Doctors who do EMGs go to four years of medical school and then have three or four more years of training in a residency program.  Most work as neurologists or physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors.  Medical training helps the doctor decide which tests to perform based on your symptoms.  It teaches doctors what can go wrong with the human body and how to tell the difference between these problems.  The American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine's policy is that an appropriately trained doctor should do all needle EMG testing.  A trained assistant or technologist under a doctor's supervision can do nerve conduction studies.

We apply the following evaluation techniques:  Nerve Conduction Studies, Electromyography, Single Fiber EMG, Nerve Hyperexcitability Testing for Cramp-Fasciculation Syndromes, Ischemic Forearm Exercise Testing, Muscle, Nerve, and Skin Biopsies and Diagnostic Injections.Nerve Conduction Studies, Electromyography, Single Fiber EMG, Nerve Hyperexcitability Testing for Cramp-Fasciculation Syndromes, Ischemic Forearm Exercise Testing, Muscle, Nerve, and Skin Biopsies and Diagnostic InjectionNerve Conduction Studies, Electromyography, Single Fiber EMG, Nerve Hyperexcitability Testing for Cramp-Fasciculation Syndromes, Ischemic Forearm Exercise Testing, Muscle, Nerve, and Skin Biopsies and Diagnostic Injections
