Welcome to Bingham Nerve & Muscle

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.

Why have I been referred to Bingham Nerve & Muscle?

You have been referred to Bingham Nerve & Muscle because you have experienced numbness, tingling, pain, weakness and/or muscle cramping.  If your provider suspects that you may have a problem with your nerves or muscles, this procedure will likely be an important part of your evaluation. This procedure takes about 30 minutes.

 

What should I bring?

Please bring your insurance cards and a valid form of identification. Also, take a bath or shower to remove oil from your skin. Do not use body lotion or powder the day of your test to improve the quality of the test results. Also, to save time, you may download and complete our Patient Forms to bring with you.

 

What kind of training do EMG/NCS doctors have?

  • Four years of college
  • Four years of medical school
  • Four years of residency in neurology or physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatry)
  • Board certification in physical medicine and rehabilitation
  • Board certification in electrodiagnostic medicine (ABEM)

 

Nerve Conduction Studies

Nerve conduction studies show how well an electrical signal travels across a nerve.  Special equipment records how the nerve works.  The doctor may test several nerves.

 

Electromyography

In this part of the exam, the doctor evaluates the electrical signals that travel from the muscle to the EMG monitor. A small electrode will be placed just under the skin in a few different muscles. With new technology and special techniques, this procedure can be done with minimal discomfort.   

 

When will I know the test results?

The doctor will need to study the test results after you leave the office. Therefore, he may not be able to discuss your results. Typically formal reports are faxed to your physician within 24 hours.  We will provide your physician with an accurate diagnosis so that you can enjoy a speedy recovery.
