Electrodiagnostics

TOCA’s electrodiagnostics experts are leaders in the science of measuring your body’s electrical activity to assist in diagnosis.

What is Electrodiagnostics?

Did you know that your body is an electrical generator? Nerves and muscles create electrical signals that deliver messages to and from your brain. Sensory nerves deliver information about your surroundings to the brain. Motor nerves deliver signals from the brain to activate your muscles.

Injuries or diseases that affect nerves and muscles can slow or halt the movement of these electrical signals. If you have pain, weakness or numbness in your back, neck or hands, measuring the speed and degree of electrical activity in your muscles and nerves can help your doctor make a proper diagnosis. This process is called electrodiagnostic testing.

Two tests are commonly used:

  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Nerve conduction studies (NCS)

For more information regarding electrodiagnostic medicine (EMG) and (NCS), or to schedule a consultation with one of the specialists at TOCA today, call TOCA at 602-277-6211 and get ready to take the first step toward a pain-free life.
