You may get a client who has been scheduled for electromyography. This is an examination of the muscles and nerves. For this test, the patient will undergo a neurological exam, nerve conduction studies, and electromyography. The results from this examination help the doctor learn if the symptoms or pain is due to muscle or nerve disease. These procedures also help evaluate the severity of the disorder.

There is no special preparation for the patient, however, because of the pain and length of the procedure, hypnosis is an excellent way to help clients have a more comfortable and satisfactory procedure.

Electromyography can take up to 3 hours using a fine, sterile needle which is inserted into the muscle. During the insertion, the patient feels discomfort similar to that of taking a blood sample. Patients are asked to relax, but not taught how, and do slight muscle contractions. The most painful part of the procedure is the electrical impulse sent into the muscle to make the muscle contract. It often takes two visits to complete the procedure and many patients refuse to return for the follow up visit because of the pain involved. Patients may even have a bruise or soreness at the needle stick site.

Hypnosis is the best treatment available for preparing patients for medical, surgical and dental procedures so learn how to do it well.
