Electromyography (EMG)

Electrodiagnostic Testing (EDX) is the study of nerve and muscle diseases. To determine whether your nerves and muscles are working properly, your doctor may recommend you have EDX testing, which may include a nerve conduction study (NCS) and a needle electromyography (EMG) test. The results of the tests help your doctor diagnose your condition and determine the best course of treatment.
