A physical therapist’s approach to diagnostic testing can make all the difference in the outcome of your treatment.
First and foremost, it’s the only means to identify the nature of your condition. If this is not done right, then your treatment—no matter how advanced it could be—may not fully, if not effectively, fix what’s wrong with your body. In short, any medical test serves as the foundation of your entire treatment plan.
Furthermore, you can already determine how capable your therapist is to improve your health with his or her way of performing test on you. Any specialist who won’t use, or lacks the resources to perform, a 360-degree approach to check you and determine the precise source of pain in your body is practically incapable of treating you.
At Allcare Physical Therapy in Brooklyn and Manhattan, our physical therapists are experts in advanced clinical reasoning and critical evaluation. This means we explore every avenue to get a clear picture of your condition. We leverage sophisticated equipment and tools to accurately evaluate what goes inside your body, which inferior technologies could miss.
Pain is complex and demands a layered protocol. Clinical director and physical therapist Ofir Issac is specially trained and certified in manual therapy and advanced diagnostic nerve testing, giving him the unique ability to assess and treat patients from a multi-dimensional perspective.
Allcare is synonymous to revolutionary physical therapy techniques. Our individualized treatment plans are proven to have high efficacy heavily because of the meticulous way we perform medical tests. We touch all the bases to examine all the possibilities and address your problem to the core.
To help us understand what’s causing your pain symptoms, we offer both electromyography and nerve conduction velocity testing and interpretation. Through this thorough examination and evaluation process, we find practical, long-lasting pain relief solutions.
What is electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) testing?
Many conditions, such as tissue swelling, injury, and disease can put pressure on a nerve and impair its ability to function. Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) are tests to help determine how well your muscles and nerves work.
EMG measures the electrical nerve impulses in muscles during contraction to identify poor nerve input or poor nerve functioning. NCV measures how well a nerve works and can help specify the site of a nerve injury. EMG and NCV are often performed at the same time to help diagnose nerve compression or injury (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), nerve root injury (such as sciatica) or other nerve abnormalities associated with pain, numbness, or tingling.
