PAIN MANAGEMENT physician
Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, your trusted destination for cutting-edge pain management solutions. If you’re experiencing unexplained pain, weakness, or numbness and need accurate diagnostic information to guide your treatment, our Electrodiagnostics services can provide the answers you seek.
Electrodiagnostics is a specialized diagnostic technique used to assess the function of nerves and muscles in the body. It includes two main components: nerve conduction studies (NCS) and electromyography (EMG). These tests help identify and evaluate a wide range of neurological and neuromuscular conditions that may be contributing to your pain or discomfort.
At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, we employ state-of-the-art equipment and a highly skilled team to conduct Electrodiagnostics with precision:
Patient Evaluation: Before recommending Electrodiagnostics, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history, perform physical examinations, and review any previous diagnostic tests. This information helps us determine if Electrodiagnostics are the appropriate diagnostic tools for your condition.
Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS): In NCS, small electrical impulses are applied to the nerves in specific areas of the body. The speed and strength of the nerve’s response are measured. Abnormalities in nerve conduction can indicate conditions such as neuropathy or nerve compression.
Electromyography (EMG): EMG involves the insertion of a fine needle electrode into the muscle of interest. The electrical activity of the muscle is recorded at rest and during voluntary contractions. This helps assess the health and function of the muscle and can detect issues like muscle disorders or nerve damage.
Assessment: The results of NCS and EMG provide critical information about the function of your nerves and muscles. This data is essential for diagnosing and understanding the source of your pain or discomfort.
Electrodiagnostics offer several significant advantages for both patients and healthcare providers:
Accurate Diagnosis: Electrodiagnostics provide precise information about nerve and muscle function, aiding in the accurate diagnosis of various neurological and neuromuscular conditions.
Customized Treatment: Armed with detailed diagnostic data, we can develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and condition.
Early Intervention: Identifying nerve or muscle issues early can lead to more effective treatment and potentially prevent further complications.
Is Electrodiagnostics Right for You?
If you’re experiencing unexplained pain, weakness, numbness, or other symptoms that may be related to nerve or muscle function, Electrodiagnostics may be recommended. However, not all patients require these tests. Our expert team will carefully assess your case to determine if Electrodiagnostics are the right diagnostic tools for you.
