Indications For Testing

  • Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) and Electromyography (EMG) provide data that helps your physician identify conditions such as carpal tunnel and a pinched nerve in the neck or back. For a more detailed list please click Here.

Clinical Examination

  • History – Brief explanation of the symptoms and conditions that bring us together.
  • Clinical tests and measures including reflexes and brief test of muscle strength with other special tests to help clarify symptoms.

Nerve Conduction Study (NCS)

  • Low levels of electrical current are applied to the skin to stimulate the nerve.
    We record the response from nerves and muscles.
  • See the video for additional clarification.

Electromyography (EMG)

  • A small needle electrode is used to sample muscle activity.
  • Multiple muscles will be sampled.


  • After analyzing the data a report is prepared and sent to your physician (usually in less than 24 hours).
  • You will follow-up with your referring provider to go over the results.
  • If you do not already have a follow-up appointment with your referring provider please contact them after the test is completed to go over your results and discuss further treatment options.


We are an EMG and NCS testing company. Electromyography, or EMG, is paired with nerve conduction studies, NCS, to evaluate the integrity of the peripheral nervous system and how it interacts with the muscles. We provide in-house services on a referral basis.
