Answer

No other tests are necessary unless indicated by history findings or abnormalities found on the clinical evaluation, such as the following:

  • True muscle weakness may prompt electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies. Compression neuropathies can be diagnosed using NCV studies.
