In order to ensure a more accurate diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Okhovat utilized Electromyography, or EMG, to diagnose nerve and muscle dysfunction and spinal cord disease. This test aims to record the electrical activity produced by the muscle and the nerves that supply the muscle.
EMG and Nerve Conduction Studies are conducted together to tests both the nerves and muscles to help Dr. Okhovat determine how the nerves and muscles are functioning. This can diagnose nerve damage, muscle disease, pinched nerves, and neuropathy. These tests can be critical to the diagnosis of chronic pain or neuromuscular condition.
