Electromyography is an instrumental examination that captures the electrical activity of muscles. In this way, the specialist verifies their condition and the correct nervous supply – innervation. The examination is indicated and performed by a neurologist.
When can your doctor recommend an EMG test?
A neurologist may indicate this test if you have symptoms of a muscle, nerve or neuromuscular disorder or disease. The most common symptoms are tingling, numbness, muscle stiffness, involuntary twitching (tics), muscle soreness or weakness – even paralysis of the upper and lower limbs.
Most often, a doctor – neurologist will recommend an EMG examination if he suspects tetanic syndrome, polyneuropathy, damage to peripheral nerves (or nerve roots in disc herniation), or disorders of neuromuscular transmission.
What EMG examinations do we perform in our center?
