Diagnose nerve pain with electrodiagnostic emg testing and nerve conduction studies at vitality physical medicine in davenport iowa

Electrodiagnostics: Diagnosing Nerve Pain

An EMG is a diagnostic exam of the peripheral nervous system, which includes nerve and muscle function. During an EMG test, a nerve conduction study (NCS) is also performed. These tests are used to determine muscle response and the electrical activity/health of the nerves. 

EMG and NCS are used to diagnose the presence, location, and extent of damage to the nerves and muscles caused by certain diseases.

A variety of conditions and diseases can cause numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, and cramping, and the first step to treatment is getting an accurate diagnosis of your muscle and nerve pain.

At Vitality Physical Medicine, we use the latest equipment in electrodiagnostic testing to help determine if your nerves and muscles are working correctly.

Dr. Brooks is committed to providing prompt appointment times for your EMG/NCS and quick turnaround time of findings so you and your health care provider can determine the best treatment options for you as quickly as possible.
