Have burning or tingling in your hands and feet? How about numbness or weakness? Peripheral neuropathy is a very common cause of these symptoms and can stem from many medical conditions. Our compassionate team of doctors offers EMG testing, a method of assessing whether or not you have peripheral neuropathy and how severe. The test comes in two parts: 1. the delivery of minute amounts of electricity to nerves of your arms and/or legs and 2. insertion of a fine needle into a few of your muscles to examine nerve/muscle communication. Please don’t suffer without knowing why. We will be happy to evaluate you and see if you require this test.
On the day of the test, please do not apply skin lotions.
