Nerve Conduction and Electromyography (EMG / NCV)
A nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test that uses electrical stimuli to assess nerve or nerve root damage and dysfunction. Electromyography (EMG) which is frequently performed in conjunction with the NCV helps determine if the firing of motor units appears normal or if it suggests neuropathic or muscular disease.
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you’re asleep.
Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a protein that blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract.
