EMG/NCS refers to the combined procedures of electromyogram and nerve conduction studies. During an EMG, Dr. Hashwani will pinpoint the source of your pain and symptoms by conducting an electrical test of your nerves and muscles. A small, thin needle is inserted into your muscles during the EMG.
Thereafter, Dr. Hashwani will conduct a NCS to examine how your body’s electrical signals are traveling to a nerve. This is done by applying small electrical stimuli to the nerve and recording how the nerve works. This may cause a quick, mild, tingling feeling.
