Diagnosing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs in patients who, through either acute trauma, a series of prolonged physical activities or pre-existing medical conditions, have had excess pressure placed upon their median nerve, causing them to suffer from the following symptoms:
- Consistent wrist pain
- Tingling, numbing, or burning sensations in their hands and fingers
- Weakness in their hand muscles
Once you have reviewed your patient’s medical history, CTS is most commonly diagnosed through a thorough physical examination of their hand and wrist. However, being that it is a disease of the nervous system, the significance of Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction testing in the diagnostic process cannot be overstated.
EMG Testing on Long Island
The sooner you invite Dr. Resnick to your practice to confirm your diagnosis of a patient’s carpal tunnel syndrome, the better the outlook becomes for their recovery. Even in the beginning stages of carpal tunnel syndrome, Dr. Resnick is able to accurately assess the damage done to your patient’s median nerve by measuring the character of the electrical impulse that travels through to the surrounding muscles and skin surface allowing for diagnosis confirmation. EMG and NCV testing allow for more precise diagnosis, better prognostication and more appropriate treatment recommendations on your behalf.
