In some medical conditions, the electrical activity of the muscles or nerves is not normal. That’s when electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) can help. During this session, Dr. Hall describes these tools. He also explains how they may help to diagnosis nerve compression or injury (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), nerve root injury (such as sciatica) and with other problems of the muscles or nerves.

Learning Objectives:
Describe EMG and NCV tests and how they differ
Recall the common considerations for using EMG and NVC tests
Discuss the concerns and abuses of EMG and NCV testing
