Bingham Nerve & Muscle specializes in state-of-the-art nerve and muscle testing (Electromyography or EMG). Bingham Nerve & Muscle has become the industry standard for accurate and comprehensive evaluations of the peripheral nervous system (the “electrical system” of the body).
We test the “wires” in the arms and legs. Patients with complaints such as pain, numbness and tingling in the arms and legs often require an evaluation by our clinic. Patients with unexplained weakness of the face, arms and legs often require a visit as well. Physicians at Bingham Nerve & Muscle have devoted our careers exclusively to Electromyography and the evaluation of nerve and muscle disorders.
This narrow focus has given our staff unusual depth of experience and we have become leaders in this field of medicine. We are respected and trusted by hundreds of doctors in the region.
Electromyography (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 minutes. No premedication is required, and you will be able to return to usual activities immediately.
