EMG’s (Electomyography) is a diagnostic test utilized to assess the condition of the muscles and nerve cells that control them. Many things can be ruled out or diagnosed with this test such as carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle dystrophy or Lou Gehrig disease.
The wait times vary province to province. Based on conversations with customers, some provinces such as Nova Scotia, can have wait times up to 2 years. In other provinces like Alberta, the wait could be 2-6 months. The downside is that there are not many clinics that can do EMG’s on a private basis if you wish to have this done in Canada. For residents of Nova Scotia, the closest place would be in Ontario. If you are in Ontario and/or have OHIP, you cannot have it done on a private basis within the province. You would have to travel to another province just as someone in Nova Scotia does. Needless to say, it can be tricky.
The clinics set the pricing themselves. The costs will vary greatly from place to place.
If you are willing to travel to the US, we have affordable options right across the border from Ontario. While the border is still closed, traveling for medical purposes is deemed essential and can be done. The concern for COVID-19 is obviously in the back of everyones minds but you can rest assured, these facilities have multiple safety measures in place to protect you to the fullest extent.
