EMG measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest during contraction. Nerves control the muscle in the body by electrical signals (impulses), and these impulses cause muscles to react in specific ways. If you’re suffering from back pain, neck pain, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, weakness in legs, arms, or hands, ask if EMG/NCS is right for you. Ultrasound offers a number of important advantages in terms of safety and effectiveness. Musculoskeletal ultrasound simply uses sonic waves, and there is no exposure to radiation. Ultrasound is noninvasive and offers real-time imaging. Thisability tocapture themovementofmusculoskeletal components, differentiates it from other imaging modalities, and can permit more accurate diagnoses. We can “see your pain” and help create an effective and individualized plan of care unique to you.
