Nerve Conduction Studies in Cartersville
A nerve conduction study (NCS) measures how quickly an electrical impulse moves through your nerve. They are often done in conjunction with an electromyography test, or EMG, which measure how quickly impulses move through your muscles. Both NCS and EMGs help identify, locate, and measure the extent of nerve and/or muscle damage.
PM&R specialist, David D. Hubbell, M.D. is specifically trained to perform both NCS and EMGs. With these tests, he is able to successfully evaluate nerve and muscle damage.
Conditions that may be evaluated with an NCV / EMG include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Herniated disk disease
- Extremity numbness or tingling
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Extremity weakness
