Neurophysiology

Neurophysiology assesses the function of the nervous system including the central (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral (arm, trunk and leg junctions between nerves and muscles) nervous systems. The London Orthopaedic Clinic offers peripheral nerve assessment through Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) and Electomyography (EMG). This is often a diagnostic step used to test for various conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. There are no known side effects associated with this form of testing and you are able to resume normal activities immediately after the investigation. Please avoid moisturising beforehand.
