Electromyography and nerve conduction studies (EMG):
The EMG test is useful for assessing the function and health of nerves and muscles. Disorders evaluated include carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves from the spine, myasthenia gravis, peripheral neuropathies, and ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
The EEG is a non-invasive recording of electrical activity in the brain. This is used to evaluate for seizure disorders.
This is a computerized test used to assess patients’ cognitive abilities. This type of testing is useful to evaluate for dementia, mild cognitive impairment, traumatic brain injuries, attention deficit disorder, or for medication effects.
Nerve blocks/trigger point injections/SPG:
These injections are helpful for headaches, chronic neck pain, occipital neuralgia, and muscles spasms.
This is a diagnostic test used to detect small-fiber neuropathies, which can often be missed by standard electrodiagnostic tests.
Botulinum Toxin Injections:
These injections can be helpful for chronic migraines, spasticity, drooling, abnormal sweating, and various neurologic movement disorders (including blepharospasm, focal upper-extremity dystonia, upper-extremity essential tremor, hemifacial spasm, focal lower-limb dystonia, and motor tics).
Neuromuscular Ultrasound Testing:
Neuromuscular ultrasound is a painless, nonvasive technique to identify skeletal muscle and nerve pathology. It can be used to evaluate entrapment neuropathies, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. It can also be used to guide injections, such as corticosteroids injections for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Our in office infusion center is able to give patients intravenous treatments for conditions including multiple sclerosis and certain neuropathies (CIDP). Medications given include IVIG, rituximab, steroids, Tysabri, and Ocrevus.
