EMG Service

The EMG test is used to evaluate the status of the muscles, nerves, roots and anterior horn cells. A number of neurological disorders present with weakness or atrophy (thinning) of muscles.

Some common disorders are:

  • Muscular dystrophy.
  • Myopathy.
  • Neuropathy.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Nerve injuries.
  • Cervical / lumbar radiculopathy.
  • Motor neuron diseases.

The EMG may be done either alone or in combination with nerve conduction studies (NCS) depending on the neurological disorder.


Common symptoms of muscle involvement:

  • Difficulty in climbing stairs.
  • Difficulty in getting up from sitting/squatting position.
  • Difficulty in performing movements like buttoning, breaking chapatis, mixing food, combing hair.
  • Raising hands above the head.

Details of Procedure:

  • A thin disposable EMG needle is inserted into the muscle to be examined. Depending on the type of disease or more muscles may be required to be tested.
  • You may experience mild pain during the procedure.
  • There is no risk of transmitting the infection since disposable needles are used and they are destroyed after use.
  • You can have your regular food and medication on the day of the test.
  • You should wear loose clothes so that the test can be easily done
