Our skillful doctors, Dr. Gregory Sahagian and Dr. Tara Quesnell, thoroughly evaluate and treat symptoms associated with neuromuscular disorders (e.g., numbness, tingling, pain). Nerve studies (EMG/NCV) are often utilized to aid in this process and are then interpreted by our specialists.
Nerve studies test to make sure that the nerves and muscles are working correctly. It helps to figure out why you have numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, or muscle cramping. The study takes about 20-90 minutes depending on the type of testing.
Some of the conditions we see here at the neuromuscular center:
- Brachial Plexopathy
