The Wisconsin Board of Physical Therapy specifically stipulates that EMG is within the scope of the Physical Therapy profession
Consistent with Wis. Stat. s. 448.50(4) the Board has determined that a Wisconsin licensed physical therapist may perform needle EMG (electromyography), surface EMG and nerve conduction studies, provided that he or she has the appropriate education, training, and experience to perform them.
EMG/NCS Testing uses electricity and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound uses sound waves for the evaluation (testing and measurement) of the neuro-musculoskeletal system.
APTA fully supports PTs practicing EMG/NCS Testing as it is within the scope of Physical Therapy Practice. The Orthopedic Section of the APTA in a white paper not only advocates the use of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging within the scope of practice for Physical Therapy but also endorses its application both for diagnostic as well as procedural purposes to aid neuromuscular re-education, dry needling and electroneuromyography.
