Welcome to Bingham Nerve & Muscle!

 

Bingham Nerve & Muscle specializes in state-of-the-art nerve and muscle testing (electromyography or EMG/NCS).  Electromyography is the standard for accurate and comprehensive evaluations of the peripheral nervous system (the “electrical system” of the body or the "wires" of the arm and leg). Patients with complaints such as pain, numbness, or tingling in the arms and legs often require an evaluation. Patients with unexplained weakness of the arms and legs often require a visit as well. This procedure is also an important method for evaluating muscle disorders.  The physicians at Bingham Nerve & Muscle have devoted their careers exclusively to electromyogrpaphy and the evaluation of nerve and muscle disorders.

This narrow focus has given our staff a unique depth of experience allowing us to make an accurate diagnosis for patients. Each year several hundred providers ask us to evaluate their patients.  We perform this test to assist your provider in the management of your condition.  We do not manage or treat patients.

About EMG/What is EMG/NCS?

emg clinic nerve test tech-patientElectromyography (EMG/NCS) is an accurate test that evaluates the health of the nerves and muscles. During the EMG, the doctor will evaluate various muscles to determine if they are functioning properly. The doctor will place a small electrode inside the muscle to record the electrical activity. A Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) measures the time required for a small stimulus to travel across a nerve.  With new technology and the special techniques developed by Dr. Bingham, this test can be performed with very little discomfort.  We routinely perform this test on adults and children.  This procedure takes about 30-60 minutes. No premedication is required, and you will be able to return to usual activities immediately.

 

Special note: This procedure is nothing to worry about.  Most patients tell us that they worried for nothing.  We also do this test on children.  You will be in complete control of this procedure and you can tell us to stop at any time.  We take every effort to make our patients comfortable. We have been performing these tests for 30 years and our unique approach minimizes any discomfort.
