What can Electrodiagnosis do?
You depend on your nerves and muscles. If something goes wrong with them, electrodiagnosis can help you get to the bottom of what is happening. It is an effective way to examine nerve and muscle behavior and evaluate weakness, numbness and tingling, and pain. It is also helpful in assessing symptoms like muscle fatigue, cramps, and abnormal sensations.
Epidural-Type Steroid Injections
Will it hurt?
Expect any procedure involving a needle to cause some discomfort. However, the medicines and techniques used make this injection very tolerable. Most patients report that the anticipation was worse than the injection.
What is an arthrogram?
An arthrogram is a study that involves an injection of contrast medium into an affected joint, followed by a series of images. This test allows the physician to see the anatomy and function of the joint. This is usually preformed and interpreted by a radiologist. The radiologist will prepare a diagnostic report to share with your referring physician. Your physician will consider this information in the context of your care.
