Are You a Candidate for Nerve Conduction Study?

Nerves and Skeleton

Thousands of residents in Georgia suffer from nerve damage. The body’s nervous system is a highly intricate weaving of connections throughout the entire body. Damage to a single nerve can cause tingling and “zaps” to occur anywhere in the body. Causes of nerve damage range from motor neuron disease, autoimmune diseases, traumatic injury, cancer, infections, vitamin deficiency, and diabetes. With so many causes of nerve damage and thousands of nerves throughout the body, it can be challenging to diagnose this condition. One diagnostic tool used to evaluate nerve damage and function is a nerve conduction study (NCS).

At Medici Spine and Pain, we use nerve conduction studies to help diagnose nerve disorders to help design an effective treatment plan for our patients. A nerve conduction study is a medical diagnostic test commonly used to evaluate the function, especially electrical conduction, of the motor and sensory nerves. How the nerves respond to signals during the diagnostic test can reveal damage and the extent of that damage. As the nerves are stimulated, the quickness of muscle contraction will be measured. If there is a sensation of pain, numbness, or tingling, the location will be recorded.

A Nerve Conduction Study is an external test that uses electrodes that are placed on the skin. One electrode will be placed above the nerve. As the nerve is stimulated, it will emit an electrical pulse. Another electrode is placed on the muscle controlled by the nerve. When electrical pulses are sent to the nerve, a tingling sensation is often felt. The time between the transmitted impulse and the muscle contraction is known as the conduction velocity. This will be recorded to compare against “control” nerves to accurately diagnose any nerve damage present.

Diagnostic testing is a critical aspect of finding the source of pain. Without understanding the source of a patient’s pain, an effective treatment plan cannot be created. Medici Spine & Pain utilizes nerve conduction studies and other diagnostic tools to help accurately diagnose chronic pain conditions.

If you suffer from nerve pain, contact Medici Spine & Pain to schedule an appointment at one of our two clinics in the greater Atlanta area. Our pain experts strive to treat the source of pain to provide relief.

Joy P.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
