What are Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography, and how can they help you if you’re suffering from pain?
The answers bear a striking similarity to an electrician’s work. According to Teton Therapy Riverton Physical Therapist John Reddon, Nerve Conduction Studies are like examining an electrical wire:
“If you think of your nerve like a basic wire, you have the wire on the inside and the rubber coating on the outside, the nerve conduction is testing that outer coating. How fast is the signal traveling? Is the signal getting stopped somewhere?”
Electromyography, on the other hand, goes to the deeper part of your body’s wiring: “The EMG is where we’re testing the inside part of the nerve, or the wire. We’re checking for damage and looking to see: Is that nerve receiving a strong enough signal? Is it activating the muscle in the way it’s supposed to be?”
So if you’re suffering from Carpal Tunnel or other nerve-related pain, call Teton Therapy. Their clinics in Lander, Riverton, and Cheyenne offer both Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography – as well as a host of other diagnostic and treatment modalities – to help you discover and recover from the source of your pain.
