Healthpointe’s electromyography and nerve conduction specialists are bringing their expertise to the Los Angeles County clinics including its newest clinic in La Tijera. Electromyography diagnostic procedures are now being offered at all Healthpointe locations throughout Southern California, including Riverside County, Orange County, and San Bernardino County.
As the muscles contract, nerve cells known as motor neurons send electrical impulses throughout the body and dictate whether the muscle is functioning properly or in an abnormal fashion. Electromyography, otherwise known as EMG, measures the electrical signals of the body’s muscles and motor neurons in order to assess their health and sustainability. Healthpointe’s specialists are now performing EMG and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests at all Healthpointe clinics including La Tijera; these tests serve to diagnose muscle paralysis, pain, numbness, or twitching, and to determine the source of any detriment in the peripheral nervous system. EMG and NCV tests help assess various abnormalities including, but not limited to, herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscular dystrophy, nerve disorders, and motor neuron diseases.
Among these specialists is Dr. Elham Jafari who specializes in neurology, electromyography, and neuromuscular diseases. As a Diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Dr. Jafari has received specialized training in EMG and neuromuscular disease diagnosis. Dr. Jafari has served at numerous hospitals and medical centers throughout the United States and has garnered years of experience in the field of neurological treatment.
