Neurodiagnostic Testing Services at NNA

Our fellowship-trained, board-certified physicians and certified technologists perform neurodiagnostic testing in our Green, Hudson, and West Akron offices for the convenience of patients and referring physicians.

Neurodiagnostic consults by our physicians ensure the most appropriate and effective tests are ordered. Or, the referring physician may directly order tests.

Testing with our state-of-the-art digital equipment is scheduled at the patient's convenience. Timely reports are generated by our staff for the referring physician.

EEG (electroencephalogram)

An EEG is the recording of electrical activity in the brain; it measures brain waves. It does not measure intelligence or "read your mind," but allows the physician to study a series of small electrical fluctuations produced by the brain.

EMG (electromyogram)

A physician may recommend an EMG to determine if muscles and nerves are functioning properly. Electrodiagnostic medicine (the study of nerves and muscles) assists the physician in analyzing symptoms—numbness, tingling, pain, weakness or muscle cramping—and determining a course of treatment. The patient may experience problems in only one part or throughout the body.

Tests include nerve conduction studies, needle EMG and evoked potentials.

What kind of medical training do EMG physicians have?
EMG physicians have four or more years of medical school and three or four more years of training in a residency program. Some physicians obtain further specialization through a one year fellowship program, which many NNA physicians have completed.
