EMG – Electromyography

A test to assess how a nerve is firing. Combined with nerve conduction velocity (NCV), we can assess the health of your nerves, looking for any evidence of nerve damage. This test is commonly used in the treatment of auto injuries. You can learn more about the process surrounding NCV and EMG.

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to create images of the organs and tissues within the body in great detail.

Musculoskeletal Medicine

Also known as non-surgical orthopedics, musculoskeletal medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of problems arising from injuries and diseases affecting the muscles, bones and joints of the limbs and spine. Almost a third all consultations performed by general practitioners relate to problems with the musculoskeletal system

NCV – Nerve Conduction Velocity

Using sensors and very small electric shocks, nerve conduction velocity can be measured and recorded to assess the health of a nerve. NCV is commonly used in conjunction with EMG in the diagnosis and the subsequent monitoring of recovery from nerve damage that can occur from auto injuries. You can learn more about the process surrounding NCV and EMG.
