Award-Winning Kenosha & Paddock Lake Podiatrists For EMG & Nerve Conduction Testing

kenosha paddock lake wi podiatrist for nerve testingAn electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerve conduction studies measure how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals.

Nerves control the muscles in the body with electrical signals called impulses. These impulses make the muscles react in specific ways. Nerve and muscle problems cause the muscles to react in abnormal ways.

If you have leg pain or numbness, you may have these tests to find out how much your nerves are being affected. These tests check how well your spinal nerves and the nerves in your arms and legs are working.

PROCEDURE

An EMG can be done at our Weil Foot & Ankle Institute podiatry offices in Kenosha and Paddock Lake, WI. It is done in a room that stops any outside electrical interference and is conducted by one of our EMG technologists or expert foot doctors.

You will be asked to lie on a table or bed or to sit in a reclining chair, so your muscles will be relaxed.

The skin over the areas to be tested is cleaned. Then we cover the skin with an electrode that is attached by wires to a recording machine.

When the electrodes are in place, the electrical activity in that muscle is recorded while the muscle is at rest. Then the technologist or doctor asks you to tighten (or contract) the muscle slowly and steadily. This electrical activity is recorded.

The electrode may be moved a number of times to record the activity in different areas of the muscle or in different muscles.

The electrical activity in the muscle is shown as wavy and spiky lines on a video monitor and may also be heard on a loudspeaker as machine gun-like popping sounds when you contract the muscle. The activity may also be recorded on video.

An EMG may take 30 to 60 minutes. When the test is done, the electrodes are removed, and your skin is cleaned.
