At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, we understand that managing chronic pain can be a complex and challenging process. That's why we offer a range of diagnostic and treatment options, including nerve conduction studies, to help our patients achieve long-term pain relief and improved quality of life.
In this service page, we'll explore what nerve conduction studies are, how they work, and why they may be the right choice for you.
Nerve conduction studies (NCS) are tests used to evaluate the function of the peripheral nerves and muscles. These tests measure the speed and strength of nerve impulses as they travel along a nerve.
NCS are typically performed on patients who are experiencing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in the arms or legs. The results of these tests can help diagnose conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and other nerve-related conditions.
Nerve conduction studies are performed by applying electrical stimuli to a nerve and measuring the resulting nerve impulses. The tests are performed using electrodes attached to the skin, and the results are recorded and analyzed to determine the speed and strength of the nerve impulses.
The procedure is typically painless and takes between 30 minutes and an hour to complete. Nerve conduction studies can be performed in our state-of-the-art facility and do not require any preparation or special preparation.
Nerve conduction studies are a valuable diagnostic tool for individuals who are experiencing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in the arms or legs.
