EMG and NCV Testing

EMG and NCV Testing

Lifespan offers EMG and NCV testing services to help our consultants accurately diagnose sports injuries and tailor a personalized treatment and rehabilitation program accordingly. These are specialized medical procedures used to assess the health and functionality of muscles and nerves within the human body.

EMG and NCV tests are invaluable tools for diagnosing a wide range of neuromuscular and neurological conditions.

What is EMG (Electromyography)?

EMG is a diagnostic test that measures the electrical activity within muscles. It helps identify muscle disorders, nerve compression, or other issues that might affect muscle function.

What is Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV)?

NCV testing involves the measurement of the speed at which electrical impulses travel along nerves. It helps in determining if there are issues with the nerve’s ability to transmit electrical signals, such as compression or damage.

Why are EMG and NCV Tests Important?

Muscle Disorders

EMG can detect problems with muscle function. It helps diagnose conditions like muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and muscle inflammation (myositis).

Nerve Disorders

NCV testing is vital for identifying conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, cervical radiculopathy, thoracic outlet syndrome, ulnar neuropathy, and nerve injuries.

Accurate Diagnosis & Treatment Planning

EMG and NCV testing works by measuring the electrical activity of muscles and the speed of nerve impulses to help identify abnormalities. This also helps in treatment planning.

Neuromuscular Disorders

EMG and NCV have proven useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of several neuromuscular disorders.

Guiding Treatment

Accurate diagnosis through EMG and NCV can help healthcare providers develop effective treatment plans, whether it’s physical therapy or medication.

Severity Assessment

They provide information about the severity of nerve or muscle damage, assisting in treatment planning and monitoring progression.
