|2 people have tried Nerve Conduction Study||1 person has prescribed Nerve Conduction Study|
A nerve conduction study (NCS) 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.
Nerve conduction studies are often done along with electromyography (EMG).

NCS is most often done to:
- Aid in diagnosing the cause of pain, cramping, numbness, or weakness
- Determine if nerves are working properly
- Distinguish between muscle and nerve disorders
- Monitor if a nerve is recovering from injury
