Electromyography (EMG)

 

Electromyography (EMG) is a type of muscle test, that measures the electrical activity of muscles. It’s a painless test that can reveal diseases that damage muscle tissue and nerves.

An electrical pulse is administered through electrodes to measure your muscle’s response.
