At Spine Surgery Associates, our pain management procedures are performed Board Certified Pain Management Physicians to maximize relief and minimize your recovery time.
During this test, small electrodes are placed on the skin and short electrical impulses are passed through the electrodes into the nerve or muscles. The reaction time and response of these muscles is used to determine precisely where the pain is being generated. The test is also used to determine if any permanent impairment or motor deficits have occurred due to nerve irritation or compression. This test is especially useful if a patient is considering a surgical procedure.
This non-surgical procedure is performed on an outpatient basis by the expert staff at Spine Surgery Associates and requires no anesthesia. We use this procedure as part of our comprehensive diagnosis process. At Spine Surgery Associates we believe that an accurate diagnosis is the first step to relief.
