MUSCLE EMG ANALYSIS

Test OVERVIEW

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission. How long do they take? An EMG may take 30 to 60 minutes. Nerve conduction tests may take from 15 minutes to 1 hour or more. 

WHY

Why would you do this test?  An EMG test looks at the electrical signals your muscles make when they are at rest and when used. A healthy muscle should not give off any electrical signals when you aren't moving it. If your muscle is damaged, it may show electrical activity while at rest or activity that is not normal while using it.

 

RECOMMENDED

Who is this test recommended for?  Muscle EMG is recommended for every athlete or individual regardless of age or the sport they play.

HOW OFTEN

How often should you repeat this test?  Muscle EMG is recommended every 6-12 months and should be repeated more often if recovering from an injury.

 

BODY PARTS

Which body parts are or can be tested?  Muscle EMG testing can be done on every muscle in the body.

 

RESULTS

What are the results of this test?   Electromyography shows how the nerves and muscles work together by measuring the electrical impulses along nerves, nerve roots, and muscular tissue. The results can help doctors distinguish inflammatory myopathies from other neuromuscular diseases, such as muscular dystrophy.

SUMMARY

 What does this help to improve?   The comprehensive muscle EMG measurement provides users with essential muscle symmetry, thickness, and muscle growth or decline information.
