There are many terms for an electromyography, or EMG study. EMG involves testing the electrical activity of muscles. Often, EMG testing is combined with a nerve conduction study, which measures the conducting function of nerves.
Along with doing an accurate study, Pain & Rehabilitation emphasizes reducing the “discomfort” of the study as much as possible. Often they have patients who say that the study “wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected!” Diagnoses for which PRM does these studies range from carpal tunnel syndrome to radiculopathy, and peripheral neuropathy to myasthenia gravis. We perform EMG and nerve conduction studies not only for patients of Pain and Rehabilitation Medicine, but also for other physicians in the greater Washington, DC region. Referring physicians are provided with detailed clinical reports and recommendations.
Pain and Rehabilitation Medicine accepts insurance payments for EMG studies.
