Electromyography (EMG)

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic study used to evaluate the muscle and nerve responses to electric signals. Your doctor will insert small electrodes into the muscle and ask you to contract that muscle. This records the electrical activity of the contracted muscles and determines the ability of the muscles to respond when its nerves are stimulated. This can help detect any nerve compression and determine the cause of the pain you are experiencing.
