Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Velocity (EMG/NCV) Testing
This examination of the nervous system determines to what extent nerves and muscles have been irritated and/or damaged. By inserting fine needles into your muscles and measuring the electrical impulses, electromyography enables our physicians to measure the activity of various muscles – and therefore determine if nerves have been damaged. With an EMG, new and old damage can be separated and the exact nerves affected can often be identified and the most effective treatment recommendations offered.
Digital (X-ray) Radiography is a high-tech form of x-ray imaging. Digital technology eliminates traditional photographic film. Less radiation is needed to produce high quality images. Other advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing as well as the ability to enhance images.
Ultrasound Imaging LISS utilizes high-resolution ultrasound imaging as an indispensable modality to guide injection for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes allowing clinicians to visualize muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints without the use of radiation.
