Electromyography (EMG) is among the procedures for assessing functions of the nerves and muscles. This kind of neurological examination is very important to establish a correct diagnosis of the pathology of the peripheral nervous system or of certain muscular disorders.

EMG is an analysis that involves the stimulation of the nerves in the skin with a low intensity electric current. Their response is recorded through electrodes.

For the examination of some muscular disorders it is necessary to use a special, disposable needle, which is introduced superficially into the muscles. It is advisable to tell your doctor if you are being treated with anticoagulants (Sintrom, Trombostop, Pradaxa, Xarelto, Eliquis, Heparina) as the procedure may cause bleeding and secondary hematoma.

The duration of an electromyography is of 20-30 minutes.
