Course 7 – EMG Techniques Lower Extremity

Similar to course 6, this course shows you videos of the commonly studied muscles in the lower extremity, insertional activity and muscle activation and motor unit analysis techniques to help you gain a working understanding of the technical skills you need to perform needle EMG examinations. The video will focus on muscle localization and needle insertion techniques, what results you should expect, how to study the shape, amplitude and duration of motor unit waveforms, pitfalls and common errors you should watch for. Muscles studied include the Extensor Digitorum Brevis (EDB), the Tibialis Anterior (TA), the Medial Gastrocnemius (MG), the Vastus Lateralis (VL) and the Lumbo-Sacral Paraspinals.
