What’s Important to Know about EMGs?

  • EMGs, or Electromyography are used to determine nerve damage, specifically in the spine
  • A disk may partially bulge out into an area where the nerve is exiting from the spine, causing symptoms into the extremities
  • Sciatica is damage to a nerve route that causes pain down the back of the legs
  • EMGs will only test nerves that are exiting the spine, so it can be tough to develop a diagnosis
