Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Velocity

Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) tests, used in conjunction with a nerve conduction study, helps our doctors analyze specific muscle groups as they relate to your nerve segments.

During this test, your doctor will use a small needle electrode (similar to an acupuncture pin) to test the muscles surrounding your affected nerve segments, both at rest and with contraction, to determine the underlying cause of your pain or discomfort. Electromyography/NCV testing is available at our Airport Boulevard location.

If you have additional questions about electromyography/NCV testing or would like to schedule an appointment at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., call (251) 450-2746.
