An electromyogram(EMG) is the measurement and recording of the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. In NMD we use it to check and compare the tonicity of the muscles of mastication before and after the application of the ULF TENS. It also helps us to know when muscle fatigue pops in.
An EMG helps in evaluation of the following:
Abnormal electrical activity of muscle
Nerve compression or injury
Conditions with damaged muscle tissue, nerves or the junctions between nerve and muscle
Cause of muscle weakness or muscle twitching
First tooth contact
Bilateral tonicity comparison
I used to have constant headaches for nearly 20 years. I've met lots of ENT surgeons and neurologists and have been consuming their medicines until I heard about Dr. Raj's NMD therapy from a friend of mine who got cured by him. I am really thankful to him for freeing me from my aches. I never realized my tiredness during any physical activity could in any way be related to my snoring.
