EMGs and NCSs
The electrodiagnostic medicine consultation may include nerve conduction studies (NCSs) and needle electromyography (EMG). These examinations can be helpful in evaluating the causes of numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, fatigue, and muscle cramping. Several types of tests are used to study nerve and muscle function.
A fracture is the term used for a broken bone. Broken bones usually occur as a result of some kind of trauma, such as a fall or a motor vehicle accident. Fractures can also occur as a result of overuse or with no specific mechanism of injury. These types of fractures are usually referred to as “stress fractures.” It is estimated that one in ten people will suffer from a fracture in their lifetime.
