NCS/EMG (Nerve Conduction Study / Electromyogram)

It is natural to have soreness or numbness in a muscle once in a while. You might strain a wrist muscle lifting something heavy, for example.

For many people, though, a sore wrist is caused by an injured nerve, not an injured muscle. When it is not clear why you are having problems with your wrist, back, legs, or other body part, one or both of these tests may be helpful.

The tests may be given to people who have the following symptoms that don't go away:

  • Pain or cramping
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Muscle weakness

Both tests EMG and NCS are helpful in diagnosing:

  • Neuromuscular diseases, such as muscular dystrophy
  • Nerve problems in the spine, such as a herniated disk
  • Nerve problems elsewhere in the body, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
