Electromyography (EMG) Lab Delivers Fast, Accurate Testing of Movement Disorders
Some neuromuscular problems are not easily identified by a physical exam, especially when patients have unusual symptoms. Unfortunately, many with such problems are misdiagnosed. Some can go for years without knowing exactly what is wrong.
University Hospitals Neurological Institute has a team of specialists dedicated to finding the causes of neuromuscular problems through electromyography (EMG) testing. This method of testing measures electrical activity in the muscles and provides detailed information about nerve function. Doctors use the results to identify a variety of muscle and nerve disorders, including:
- Entrapment neuropathies
- Peripheral neuropathies
The average stay at the EMG lab is one to two hours. Patients can return home as soon as the testing is complete. There are no side effects or restrictions on activities that result from EMG testing.
