This outpatient diagnostic test is used to evaluate the health of muscles and the nerves, called motor neurons, which control the muscles. EMG is a valuable diagnostic device for determining the cause of muscle weakness and for identifying neurologic disorders.
At Seattle Spine & Sports Medicine, our physician providers have core training and expertise with this specialized technique. We work hard to put patients at ease, and to minimize patient discomfort with this valuable diagnostic tool.
These are diagnostic studies that allow us to “write down of the electrical activity of muscle” and “measures how fast nerve impulses travel within your body”. We perform this procedure to help diagnose nerve and muscle injuries.
