An electromyogram (EMG) is a diagnostic study that has
been used by health care providers for over 50 years. An EMG
examination is typically ordered by a physician to evaluate
for muscle or nerve damage as part of a medical work-up.
Electromyograms measure the electrical impulses of muscles
at rest and during contraction. Measuring the electrical
activity in muscles and nerves can help detect the presence,
location, and extent of diseases that can damage muscle
tissue. An EMG is most often performed when people have
symptoms of muscle weakness.
