EMG / NCS
Electromyography / Nerve Conduction Study
Your doctor may order EMG and nerve testing to secure further evidence for diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves, peripheral neuropathy and other nerve disorders.
At Selkirk Neurology, you will be scheduled for this test and cared for in clinic by our qualified staff of technologists and a neurology provider.
This is a two part test.
The first part of the test involves our technologist using small electrical charges to stimulate your nerve and measure its' health. Your assigned neurologist will then insert a small needle just underneath the skin to "listen" to nerve and muscle communication.
Test results are provided directly to the referring provider. They will follow-up with you and address any questions regarding your test and future care.
Please dress accordingly for access to your arms and legs as testing requires. Gowns are available.
