What is Electromyography (EMG) Testing?
EMG Testing is a diagnostic test that is used to evaluate the health of your peripheral nerves. This process is actually a set of two tests where we look at how the muscles respond to nerve signals. This helps us to identify if you do indeed have a nerve injury and if so, where it is along the path of the nerve and how severe the injury may be.
What are the Benefits of EMG Testing?
There are a number of key benefits of EMG testing, a few of which include:
- Allows trained and properly certified doctors to figure out the root cause of the numbness or lack of sensation that you may be experiencing.
- Can be an integral part of a more comprehensive workup for someone who may be dealing with a number of pain issues, tingling, or weakness. This type of testing along with other procedures such as MRIs, X-rays, and lab work can all work together to give a more holistic view of a patient’s needs.
- Very specific for nerve issues
Who is a Good Candidate for EMG Testing?
Anyone who deals with chronic pain or numbness could be a good candidate for EMG testing. If you’re experiencing a certain numbness or pain in an area of your body, EMG testing can be used to locate the exact nerve where this pain or numbness is originating. This then gives doctors a very precise area where they know they need to focus.

It’s important to remember that EMG testing is a test and not a treatment option. While this type of testing can help to steer doctors in a certain direction related to treatment, it is not a treatment by itself.
It’s important when having EMG Testing performed that you work with a reputable and board-certified physician like Dr. John Santa Ana who has experience analyzing the results of these tests and putting together treatment methods based on those results.
If you’re interested in learning more about EMG Testing and would like to know if you would be a good candidate, feel free to reach out to our team at MCRM today at (248) 216-1008, or reach out via email using our online contact form.
