Electromyelographic Testing (EMG): The EMG is a test used by a neurologist for patients who are experiencing symptoms such as neck pain, low back pain, pain in the extremities, muscle weakness, soreness, fatigue, and/or weakness. The test shows any nerve injuries and disorders with 3 factors: to what extent the nerve reacts, how quickly the nerve responds, and at what speed a stimulus can travel through a nerve. The EMG provides measurable information about the integrity and function of spinal nerves. The EMG is a vital part of a patient’s evaluation at Mecca integrated Medical Center because it enables the health care professionals to construct an appropriate treatment plan that is specifically tailored for the patient. Lastly, the test helps the providers track a patients short and long term progress over the course of treatment.
