Description of the study

EMG electromyography is the study of neuromuscular connections in neurological and orthopedic disorders. Electroneurography (ENG) is the prelude to EMG testing. The ENG test is performed to determine if there is damage to the peripheral nerve(s) of the arms or legs in case of pain, weakness, burning or tingling sensations. The test also determines where the nerve(s) are damaged. Complementing the ENG examination is an EMG study. The EMG also examines the muscles if their disease is suspected, usually manifested by pain, weakness, muscle atrophy.

During ENG - electrodes are applied to the skin. Sometimes it is necessary to perform the test with a disposable needle. During EMG, a needle electrode is inserted into the patient's body in the area of the nerve under study, which records muscle function during rest, any movement and maximal effort.


  • implanted electric pacemaker,
  • Metal components in the heart (such as an artificial valve),
  • Metal components in the body area under examination, such as endoprostheses.
