Neurophysiology and EMG
Specialists in neurophysiology perform clinical neurologic and electromyography (EMG) tests, diagnostics and treat neurological diseases of the peripheral nervous system, neuropathic pains and motor disabilities.
The EMG tests provide a rather good classification of various damages and injuries of the peripheral nervous system. The most common are obstructive neuropathies, primarily carpal tunnel syndrome. Nerve root disorders are often connected to orthopaedic diseases (for example spinal disc herniation, obstructive spinal cord).
