After many years in practice, our neurologists know what works for one patient may not work for the next. They design custom treatment plans that consist of various combinations depending on your specific needs.
During your visit, your physician may order an EEG/EMG
What is an EEG?
An Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a painless procedure that measures the eletrical activity of a patient’s brain by placing electrodes on the head to detect any problems. An EEG is an important tool used to evaluate and diagnose seizures, causes of confusion and degenerative diseases.
What is an EMG/NCS?
An Electromyography (EMG) uses a fine wire electrode to evaluate the activity of the patient’s muscles. The Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) involves stimulating the nerves with a small amount of electricity and recording how each nerve conducts this signal along its course. The EMG and the NCS are utilized in diagnosis of a pinched nerve in the arm or leg, as well as muscle and neuromuscular disorders.
