Electromyography (EMG)

Also known as: Electromyogram, Nerve Conduction Study
An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerve conduction studies measure how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals. Nerves control the muscles in the body by electrical signals (impulses), and these impulses make the muscles react in specific ways. Nerve and muscle disorders cause the muscles to react in abnormal ways. Providence Brain and Spine Institute is a comprehensive, integrated program treating all conditions of the brain and spine.
