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 30-60 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?

 

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 is done with minimal discomfort.   

 

When will I know the test results?

Our physicians do testing only. They will not discuss the diagnosis or treatment of your condition.  Please return to your referring provider for further care.  Typically formal reports are faxed to your physician within 48 hours.  We will provide your physician with an accurate diagnosis so that you can enjoy a speedy recovery.
