EMG or electromyography is an essential diagnostic procedure used to evaluate peripheral neurological disorders. It is used to check and study the nerve response to electrical activity when the muscle is stimulated. It identifies the deviation in communication between nerve and muscle. The procedure includes the use of electrode pins which are inserted through the skin, and the electrical activity is picked and displayed on the screen. It displays the activity of muscle during muscle movement like the contraction.
