EMG and NCV Unit
Infinity Physio


Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are tests used to diagnose neuromuscular disorders. EMG measures the electrical activity of muscles, while NCV measures the speed at which electrical signals travel through nerves. These tests are often performed together to get a more complete picture of a patient’s condition.


EMG and NCV can be used to diagnose a variety of neuromuscular disorders, including:
● Carpal tunnel syndrome
● Myasthenia gravis
● Multiple sclerosis
● Muscular dystrophy
● Peripheral neuropathy
● Pinched nerve
● Radiculopathy
● Sciatica
● Spinal stenosis
● Stroke
● Tourette’s syndrome

Role of physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can play an important role in the treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Physiotherapists can help patients to improve their strength, flexibility, and range of motion. They can also teach patients how to manage their pain and prevent further injury.
In addition to EMG and NCV testing, physiotherapists may also use other diagnostic tools, such as manual muscle testing and sensory testing. This information helps them to develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient.
Here are some of the specific ways that physiotherapy can help patients with neuromuscular disorders:
Improve muscle strength and flexibility: Physiotherapists can use a variety of exercises and techniques to help patients improve their muscle strength and flexibility. This can help to improve patients’ functional mobility and reduce their pain.
Increase range of motion: Physiotherapists can help patients to increase their range of motion in affected joints. This can help to improve patients’ ability to perform daily activities and participate in recreational activities.
Reduce pain: Physiotherapists can use a variety of pain management techniques, such as heat and ice therapy, massage, and electrical stimulation, to help patients reduce their pain.
Prevent further injury: Physiotherapists can teach patients how to protect their muscles and nerves from further injury. This may include teaching patients how to lift objects safely, how to maintain good posture, and how to avoid repetitive motions.
If you have been diagnosed with a neuromuscular disorder, physiotherapy can be a valuable part of your treatment plan. Physiotherapists can help you to improve your quality of life and manage your condition more effectively.
