Electromyography (EMG)

Good Shepherd’s physiatrists are experienced in administering electromyography (EMG) tests, which measure muscle response or electrical activity of muscles at rest and during movement or contraction. This diagnostic test can find diseases that damage muscle tissue, nerves or the junctions between nerves and muscles, as well as determine the cause of weakness, paralysis or muscle twitching (i.e., muscular dystrophy or carpal tunnel syndrome).
