Answer

No findings should be present on needle examination of the muscle during EMG. Needle examination should include the quadriceps and the adductor longus to assess for femoral and obturator nerve injury. If findings are present in both of these muscles, then paraspinal muscles definitely should be examined to rule out radiculopathy.
