Electromyography (EMG)

Electromyography, or EMG, show how well the body's electrical signals are traveling to a nerve.  This is done by applying electrodes to your skin and then applying small electrical shocks to the nerve and recording how the nerve works.  The shocks cause a quick, mild, tingling feeling.  There are no lasting side effects after the EMG and you can resume your normal activities immediately after the test.
