Exams and Tests
Physicians evaluate tremors with clinical examination and diagnostic tests. Some of these tests are as follows:
Some tests, such as surface electromyograms and mechanical recording devices, help to define the rhythmicity, amplitude, and frequency of the tremors as well as the relationship between tremors and movements. These are not highly used in medical practice.
Other tests are useful to diagnose diseases that might be associated with the tremors.
In many instances a clinical examination might be more than enough to establish the diagnosis, and other tests are not indicated.
