Nerve Conduction Velocity Study

Nerve Conduction Velocity Studies are a great diagnostic tool for understanding the function, especially the ability of electrical conduction of the motor and sensory nerves. The equipment used for the testing is completely portable and can be conducted like our entire diagnostic test at the patient bedside.

The test itself is relatively quick, some minor pain may be experienced, but it is essentially a non-invasive diagnostic procedure.

The NCV test measures the sensory and motor nerve function.  It is useful in the evaluation of certain neurological conditions or to assess any type of nerve root entrapment which might be causing some type of radiculopathy.

Some of the more common diagnosis that can be assessed with the NCV testing are:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (Median Nerve)

  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome (Ulnar Nerve)

  • Guillain-Barr√© Syndrome

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Peroneal Neuropathy

  • Spinal Disc Herniation

  • Sciatic Nerve Entrapment

  • Polyneuropathy (Diabetics or Alcoholics)

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Herniated Disc Disease

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease
