NeuroHealth Diagnostic Testing: Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography
These tests detect nerve and muscle problems and help determine the cause of muscle weakness, numbness, or pain. The tests are most commonly ordered to diagnose pinched nerves in the neck, lower back or extremities, e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome. A detailed exam is required before administering these tests to pinpoint specific problem areas and to avoid unnecessary testing.

Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
NCS tests measure the speed and response of nerves to electrical stimulation. A small electrode taped to your skin records tiny electrical impulses sent through your nerves by an electrical stimulator. You may notice a slight tingling sensation during testing. The doctor evaluates the electrical responses and determines if the nerve impulses are conducted normally; conducted at a slow speed; or not transmitted at all, suggesting damage to the nerve.

"I am very pleased – actually ecstatic – about my last month coming to NeuroHealth. I have never before received such help, and I now feel better. I will let anyone who asks know about NeuroHealth. If they suffer migraines, they will hear from me of your commitment to helping patients."

"I'm always very comfortable and feel that all my questions have been answered. Today I brought up a new concern, hand and wrist pain, and was referred to Dr. L'Europa for a nerve test and to occupational therapy immediately. I am completely satisfied with the service today and always."
