Nerve conduction testing is a simple, painless and non-invasive test that allows the physician to measure the health of specific nerves. The procedure involves delivering a small electric pulse at one point on a nerve and measuring the response at another point. The nerves are stimulated at various locations depending on the symptoms. Results are available immediately to the physician so they can prescribe a treatment plan quickly. The tests are usually completed in about 20 minutes. It is a painless test to the patient and requires no preparation. We provide the technologist and the equipment.
