About

A nerve conduction study is a test that measures the speed and strength of electrical activity in a nerve. The test can gather information about the structure and function of both muscle and nerve.

A nerve conduction study is most often done to:
- Help diagnose the cause of pain, cramping, numbness, or weakness
- Determine if nerves are working properly
- Identify the difference between muscle and nerve disorders
- Monitor if a nerve is recovering from injury

The test will take approx. 90 minutes. Electrodes are taped to the skin along the nerves that are being studied. A small stimulus will be used to apply an electric current that causes the nerves to activate. The electrodes will measure the current that travels down the nerve pathway. You will feel mild discomfort, but the test is not very painful.
