Electroneuromyographic examinations education and training.

A physical therapist may perform electroneuromyographic (EMG) examinations, which may include needle EMG and nerve conduction studies, to test neuromuscular function only if the physical therapist has received a referral from an authorized health care practitioner identified in RCW 18.74.010(1) and only upon demonstrating education and training in EMG examinations. The performance of tests of neuromuscular function includes the performance of electroneuromyographic examinations. The board will accept the following as evidence of education and training:
A minimum of four hundred hours of instruction in electroneuromyographic examinations including at least two hundred needle EMG studies under direct supervision from a qualified provider. A qualified provider includes a physical therapist with board certification in clinical electrophysiology from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, a neurologist, or a physiatrist.
