Nerve injuries can be debilitating, a diagnostic procedure such as an EMG or an Ultrasound can help with a proper diagnosis.
If you are suffering from a nerve injury come to Performance Pain & Sports Medicine for expert, quality treatment and care.
Often, patients come from other medical practices looking for a solution.
EMG is a diagnostic procedure commonly used to assess the health of muscles and can aid in the diagnosis of nerve injuries, such as nerve compression, carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica.
An EMG uses small needles (electrodes) that are inserted through the skin into the muscle. These electrodes can transmit electrical signals or pick up the electrical activity created by your muscles; it then translates these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that our specialists can interpret.
Diagnostic ultrasound is a safe and painless medical test that helps diagnose and treat medical conditions by producing pictures of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound images of the musculoskeletal system provide our physicians with pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue throughout the body.
