Electromyography (EMG)

It is therefore a lesion of the level of the axon of the myelin or of the neuromuscular junction (Myasthenia) .

Diagnostic Through Electromyography

Sometimes you experience weakness of the limbs, or loss of sensitivity , or even a limb is suddenly paralyzed (sometimes after an accident) , the EMG may be requested by the doctor.

It makes it possible to study the peripheral nervous system of the muscles and the neuromuscular junctions. Like Echodopplers , it is a non-traumatic and painless examination, in the worst case, it is slightly unpleasant during the fine bites that the examiner implants in the muscle.

With the EMG, we deliver the tracing of the electric currents that accompany musclular activity, whether it is at rest, active or even during galvanic stimulation as part of a neurological examination.

The plot obtained (Electromyogram) reveals the location of the lesion responsible for our complaints.
