Nerve conduction tests measure how fast an electrical impulse moves through your nerves. Based on the results, we can determine if nerve damage has occurred, where it happened, and to what extent. This helps find the presence, location, and extent of diseases that damage the nerves and muscles. Nerve conduction tests are mainly meant to identify nerve damage but may also be done to find the cause of symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and continuous pain. Often, nerve conduction studies are performed with electromyography. Conducting these two diagnostic tests allows neurologists to more accurately determine the cause of the problem and how it has affected your body.
