Nerve Damage in Delaware
At Grossinger Neuropain Specialist, we understand that the reason you found us or are coming to us is to help you with your pain. The first thing that needs to be done is to find out why you are in pain. An EMG or Electromyogram Test is used when patients have muscle weakness or damage and do not know what the cause is. An EMG helps determine whether the condition is strictly a muscle problem or if it is due to nerve disorders.
It is also used to detect a true weakness in the muscle, as opposed to weakness from reduced use because of pain or even lack of motivation. Lastly EMGs are also used to isolate the level of nerve irritation, damage or injury.
How an electromyogram (EMG) test works:
It is a test that is used to record the electrical activity of muscles. When your muscles are active, they naturally produce an electrical current from your body. This current is based on the level of the muscle activity. An EMG is also known as a myogram at times. EMGs 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, and other conditions.
