About nerve condition studies
Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography (EMG) are sophisticated electrical tests which measure the transmission of impulses along the nerves and the contraction of muscle fibres. These tests are specialised diagnostic tools which are performed by expert neurologists using advanced equipment.
Nerve conduction studies and EMGs are used to help diagnose a variety of neurological conditions including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar neuropathy
- Peripheral neuropathy
At Precision Brain, Spine and Pain Centre, our neurologists offer quick access to nerve conduction studies and EMGs through our Nerve Conduction Study Clinic. The last thing patients want to do is to wait around for months to find out what is wrong with them, so we ensure that our neurologists and equipment are available to you within a few weeks. The results come back immediately, and if further referrals or treatment are needed we will help to expedite these for you.
To have a nerve conduction study done without waiting too long, just call for an appointment and ask your GP to arrange a referral.
