For individuals involved in a work injury such as a slip and fall, repetitive trauma disorder or herniated disc while at work, an electrodiagnostic study plays a significant role in treatment decisions along with effective documentation for the employer. When the electrodiagnostic study is performed by a Board Certified Federal and Arizona workers compensation doctor such as with Arizona Injury Medical Associates, P.L.L.C., employers can rest assured the study has been performed by the most competent physician around.
Electrodiagnostic studies consist of two separate portions to help evaluate weakness, numbness and pain. The first study is an electromyographic examination, known as an EMG. The workers compensation doctor inserts fine needles into selected muscles and looks at the resulting electrical activity along with audible signals. The study is excellent at determining if the muscles are working normally.
The second study is a nerve conduction study, known in short as an NCS. The workers compensation doctor places electrodes on the skin and applies a mild electric stimulus to the extremity nerves. Based on the nerve impulse criteria, the doctor is able to determine if there is significant nerve injury.
Based on the results obtained from the electrodiagnostic studies, the workers compensation physician will then be able to report accurately on the objective findings. He will also determine the most effective course of treatment to help alleviate pain and get the individual back to work as soon as possible.
