Electro Diagnostic Medicine

Electro diagnostic medicine is a PM&R subspecialty which uses electrophysiological techniques for diagnosing and treatment of impairments in the neuromuscular and neurologic systems. These studies are useful in suspected diagnosis confirmation, sub clinical disease process identification, pathophysiology definition and other uses. The conditions treated include carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve complications, radiculopathy, polyneuropathy, and less common muscular diseases. Conditions that are diagnosed include muscle disorders like Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, and peripheral neuropathies such as muscle dystrophy.  Electromyography and Nerve conduction studies are common practices used in this field. Electromyography is for muscles and Nerve conduction studies are for nerves. These tests cannot show the extent of pain over the area but they can show the extent of nerve damage and also the healing status of that nerve.
