Nerve Conduction. The purpose is to check if the muscles and nerves are healthy. A needle EMG electrode is used to test the muscles that will record the waves very similar to an electrocardiogram. The nerves are tested with an electrical stimulator to record how nerve conduct electricity. The abnormal waves and values will yield the specific diagnosis such as “pinched nerves”.
Musculoskeletal disorders are injuries or conditions affecting the joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves and structures that support the arms, legs, neck and back.

The Physiatrist performs electrodiagnostic studies (EMG & NCS) for evaluation and diagnosis of focal compressions, nerve injuries and peripheral neuropathies that may affect or compromise hand function. Physiatrist also treats inflammatory conditions of the joints, ligaments and tendons using pharmacological approach, local cortisone injections and physical measures.
Rheumatic diseases are painful conditions usually caused by inflammation, swelling and pain in the joints, soft tissue and/or muscles. Some rheumatic diseases like osteoarthritis are the result of “wear and tear” to the joints. Other rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, happen when the immune system attacks the linings of joints, causing joint pain, swelling, and destruction.
