    The EMG Problem

    CHART-ERRORSIn recent years, there has been an alarming trend in the field of electrodiagnostic medicine (electromyography and nerve conduction studies or EMG/NCS).  In an attempt to increase profitability, numerous individuals have seized the opportunity to perform this very important procedure without the appropriate training or equipment.


    The Solution

    caduceusElectromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) are invaluable diagnostic tools. When an injured worker sustains a possible neurologic injury, causing symptoms of pain, numbness, tingling, burning, or weakness, EMG and NCS provide the roadmap to locate and evaluate the type and severity of the injury, as well as to rule out other potential medical conditions.


    The Benefits

    thumbs-up-iconThere are eight million EMG/NCS studies performed per year at an average cost of 350 dollars.  Two million of those studies are poorly done.  One billion dollars is wasted every year on poorly performed studies.



    Poor Quality EMG studies are Rampant and Costly

    poor quality


    The estimated annual bill for EMG studies approximates 2.8 billion dollars.  The bulk of these studies are done by qualified, properly trained doctors, using the appropriate equipment.  This is changing however, as an increasing number of fraudulent EMG studies are being done by an increasing number of questionable gadgets that are coming into the market.
    This is an alarming occurrence that is happening more frequently.



    Was Your Last EMG Performed By A Qualified Physician?


    EMGs and nerve conduction studies are excellent tests if done correctly.  While they represent the “gold standard,” many physicians who rely on these studies have come to believe that they may actually represent “Fool’s gold.”  The reason that there is some doubt about their usefulness is that these tests are routinely being done poorly.  Unnecessary surgery may be performed everyday because of tests which were done improperly.  Why are these tests done poorly?
