Hi, I need help understanding my last EMG. I had it done in Spain in 2008 and didn't get to see the doctor after. I had an arthdesis in C6-C7 and after an arthoplasty in C5-C6 both in 2005. My accident was in 2004. I still have pain and a lot of problems with the medication.
This EMG (I tried to translate it the best I can) says:
The scan shows mild chronic neurogenic atrophy in the right uper limb compatible with a C7 chronic radiculopathy. No signs of evolution.
If anyone could explain what it means and what can be done, I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance for your help!

The American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine would be a good place to get more information.
