NCV stands for nerve conduction velocity, and EMG stands for Electromyography.NCV and EMG is done simultaneously. They are very crucial for people who face spine related problems. The purpose of doing them is to find out the muscle and nerve disorder. EMG detects the functionality of muscle according to the nerve’s stimulus. Whereas, NCV can detect nerve-related problems.
It is often used along with an EMG to tell the difference between a nerve disorder and a muscle disorder. NCV detects a problem with the nerve, whereas an EMG detects whether the muscle is working correctly in response to the nerve’s stimulus.
