Tests & Treatments

  • Biofeedback Therapy
    During biofeedback therapy, you're connected to sensors that measure relaxation to produce reduced muscle tension and normalized blood flow.

  • Biopsy
    A biopsy is a procedure performed to remove tissue or cells from the body for examination under a microscope.

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Electroencephalogram
    The procedure is performed by a specially trained EEG technologist to measure brain activity, and neurologists utilize the results to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of a possible neurological disorder.

  • Electromyography
    An abnormal EMG result may be a sign of peripheral neuropathy, polymyositis, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis or other neuromuscular disease.

  • Evoked Potentials Studies
    This group of tests of the nervous system measure electrical signals to the brain in response to sight, sound and touch.

  • MRI
    Radiologists and oncologists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of your body to help detect many conditions.

  • Nerve Conduction Velocity
    If you are experiencing numbness, tingling and/or burning sensations in your legs or arms, your physician may order a nerve conduction velocity test to determine if nerve damage has occurred.

  • Physical Therapy
    The goal of physical therapy is to help you increase your mobility, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability, allowing you to move independently through your environment.
