EMG is a method of diagnosis to diagnose diseases affecting peripheral nerves, to confirm the diagnosis, to determine the severity of structural defects or to detect the severity of structural damage, to monitor the disease process and to evaluate the effect of treatment. The nervous system consists of two parts which called the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system anatomically. The brain and spinal cord form the central nervous system, while the arm and leg nerves form the peripheral nervous system of the body and head nerves. 

The nervous system can be thought of as a computer where the outside world is perceived by senses such as seeing, hearing and touch, and where appropriate response behaviors and movements are planned. These functions are carried out by the electrical activities of nerve cells called neurons. The electrical signals produced from the sensory organs such as the eyes, ears and skin are transferred to the neurons in the spinal cord and brain through the sensory nerve fibers and the senses are processed in the complex plexuses. In the central nervous system, electrical signals are generated that generate responses and movements that are appropriate to these senses, and these signals are transmitted to the muscles and other organs via the motor nerve fibers. Our muscles that provide all the movements of our body are controlled by electrical signals transmitted from the motor fibers of the peripheral nervous system. In EMG examination, the electrical signals in the nerve fibers and muscles carrying the sensory and motor signals in the peripheral nervous system are recorded by suitable electrodes and then upgraded in special amplifier systems so they can be evaluated by neurology experts. In other words, with EMG examination, peripheral nervous system and muscles controlled by this system are evaluated.
