Why do EMG In Addition To PT?

Electromyography (EMG) diagnostic testing is an essential tool used by physical therapists to diagnose muscle and nerve conditions accurately. EMG tests are performed by placing electrodes on the skin to record the electrical activity produced by muscle fibers. This information helps determine the speed and strength of electrical signals as they travel through nerves.

After analyzing the data, a report is prepared and sent to your physician (usually in less than 24 hours). After reviewing your data, together with your referring provider, our team will go over the results and discuss your results.

Your EMG test results help provide a more accurate and objective measure of muscle function. This allows our Therapy West Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine physical therapists to determine the exact location and severity of a patient’s muscle or nerve problems.

Our physical therapists will tailor your treatment plans to address your needs and goals using the outcomes of your EMG tests and our comprehensive evaluation. We use the information to determine the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms, identify underlying medical conditions, and monitor progress.

Our Therapy West Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine physical therapists use the results of these tests to provide a more accurate and objective measure of muscle function than can be obtained through our clinical examination alone. EMG testing helps our therapists make more informed decisions and allows us to monitor the patient’s progress during treatment and adjust the plan as needed.
