Grossinger Neuropain Specialist, pain management doctors in Delaware, now have EMG (Electromyography) available to help find the root of the problem.
Here is an idea of EMG, the process that goes into it and what they can help detect:
- EMG (Electromyography) is a test that is used to record the electrical activity of muscles. When a person’s muscles are active, they naturally produce an electrical current from their body. This current is based on the level of muscle activity. An EMG is also known as a “myogram” at times. EMG’s can be used to detect abnormal electrical activity of muscle that can be a result of specific diseases and conditions, including muscular dystrophy, inflammation of muscles, pinched nerves, peripheral nerve damage (damage to nerves in the arms and legs), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), myasthenia gravis, disc herniation, along with other conditions.
