EMG (Electromyogram)

Dr. Rosa Bell and Neurological Care Center of Montgomery offer and utilize EMG (Electromyogram) Testing. During this procedure, small needle sensors (electrodes) are used to record the electrical activity in selected muscles and peripheral nerves during rest and as they contract during movement. The electrodes transmit this information to a machine that provides a graphic representation of the muscles’ electrical discharge; the resulting data show how well the muscles work. Muscle and nerve disorders or injury, Muscular Dystrophy, and other degenerative nerve conditions such as Lou Gehrig’s Disease can be properly diagnosed and assessed using EMG Technology.
