Otherwise known as electrodiagnostic testing, EMG is an advanced technique known to pain management and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists to help diagnose and evaluate discomfort related to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Common conditions or injuries that frequently use EMG include: 

  • Back, neck, and spine pain
  • Muscle fatigue or cramping
  • Numbness or weakness

Recognized as a conservative approach to care, EMGs are often used to determine the source of nerve or muscle pain thereby helping to determine the best course of treatment for your unique needs.
