EMG Testing Near Beverly Hills, MI

EMG Testing Near Beverly Hills, MI

At The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we proudly offer electromyography (EMG testing) to diagnose injuries and conditions affecting your nerves and the muscle’s connective tissue. For patients in the Beverly Hills, MI area, EMG testing can help get to the root of your pain and create a treatment plan specific for you. To learn all you need to know and how to prepare for an EMG test at The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, check out the breakdown below.

What Is Electromyography?

When you move, your brain sends electrical signals via your nerves, along the nervous highway in your spine, to the muscles with commands to react. Electromyography is a purely diagnostic tool doctors use to test the nerves and skeletal muscles and their controlling nerves. EMGs can detect issues with those nerves, the muscles, and the connections between them.

EMG tests are conducted by inserting an electrode into the muscle via a needle. While sounding painful, the pain is minimal. After the electrode is inserted, the doctor will likely ask you to move the affected limb, as muscles do not conduct electricity at rest. With the movement of the muscle, electrical signals are sent to the testing device and provide information on the response of your nerves to stimulation.

What Should You Do Before An EMG Test?

After a physical examination, if your doctor orders an EMG test, they will likely go over the above and explain what to expect from the procedure. When preparing for an EMG exam, follow these steps:

  1. There is no need to fast before an EMG. Still, due to the stimulant nature of certain substances, you will likely be asked not to consume alcohol or caffeine and cease smoking cigarettes or any substance containing nicotine a few hours before the test.
  2. If you have a pacemaker, notify the doctor immediately, as they can be affected by an EMG test and lead to potential complications.
  3. Bring a list of all medications, including over-the-counter meds and herbal remedies, as some can contain stimulants like caffeine.
  4. Don’t apply any lotions or oils to the area being tested on the day of your exam.
  5. Get a list of other preparations, which may vary depending on your condition, from your doctor prior to the visit.

What Conditions Can Be Diagnosed With EMG Testing?

Numerous potential conditions can be diagnosed or ruled out by the use of an EMG. The most common pain-causing conditions that can benefit from EMG Testing include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Herniated Disc
  • Sciatica
