Private EMG Test

EMG (Electromyography) is a diagnostic test. It is used to assess the condition of muscles and the nerve cells that control them.  It can help diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerve, herniated disc disease, sciatica, muscle dystrophy and Lou Gehrig disease.

If you are experiencing symptoms that may indicate a muscle or nerve disorder, your doctor may refer you for an EMG. This test is usually done along with NCV (Nerve Conduction Velocity) test. NCV detects a problem with the nerve, and an EMG detects whether the muscle is working properly in response to the nerve stimulus. The results of the test can help your doctor better determine presence, location and extent of diseases that damage the nerves and the muscles.

The wait times for EMG differ from province to province in Canada. It will also depend on the severity of the pain you are experiencing. In Nova Scotia, our clients report that it can take up to 2 years, and in Alberta 2-6 months. The test can be arranged privately with minimal waiting.  Please note that there are not any private facilities in Canada that offer this on a private basis.  There are affordable options across the border.  Click here to purchase the list of facilities!
