Nerve Conduction Testing

NERVE CONDUCTION/ELECTROMYOGRAPHY TESTING (NCV/EMG)

 

NCV (NERVE CONDUCTION VELOCITY)

This test involves electrical stimulations applied to specific nerves in the upper and/or lower extremities. A Technician will perform this test.

 

EMG (ELECTROMYOGRAPHY)

This test involves the insertion of a small gauge needle into selected muscles of the upper and/or lower extremities. This needle is similar in size to an acupuncture needle and delivers NO medication or electrical stimulation. A Physician will perform this test.

 

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR NCV/EMG TESTING

  1. SKIN MUST BE CLEAN AND DRY
  2. Please do not apply lotions, powder, gels, or other petroleum – based products prior to testing
  3. If you hand and/or feet are calloused, please soak 2-3 days in advance and remove old skin prior to testing.
  4. Please remove all jewelry prior to testing.
  5. Please turn off cellular phones prior to testing
  6. Due to limited space and the possibility of electrical interference, you may bring 1 person to the Testing Room with you.

 

If you are scheduled for NCV only, or if the Testing Physician is not your regular doctor, please keep you follow-up appointment to review the results of the test and to discuss treatment options.

 

If you have any further questions prior to you scheduled test, please call the office at 762-235-3550. Thank you.
