Answer

EMG and nerve conduction testing are helpful in the evaluation of possible suprascapular nerve impingement and involvement of the long thoracic, axillary, musculocutaneous, spinal accessory, and brachial plexus nerves and to rule out cervical radiculopathy as a cause of shoulder pain and weakness.
