If you have neck or back pain, your doctor may order electrodiagnostic tests to check your nerves and muscles. These tests can help your doctor find nerve or muscle damage. In some cases, the tests aren’t needed. But if the symptoms are severe or continue for a while, you may need an electrodiagnostic test.
