Electromyogram (EMG)

Electromyogram is a study used for the testing of restless legs, leg cramping, weakness, and spasms. This test is read by our staff Musculoskeletal and Neurologic Medicine physician, Dr. Sudberg.

This test is used in those patients that do not have a clear cut vascular diagnosis for their symptoms, in order to ensure that we perform the right treatment for the right patient in order to obtain the best result possible.

The test takes approximately 20 minutes and is performed using a small accupuncture type needle that stimulates muscle contraction which can be measured in form and function.
