Ensuring your client receives the proper diagnostic tests following an accident is essential in determining the appropriate care and recovery. This is especially important in assessing possible nerve and muscle damage, which may not be easily visible, but is nonetheless painful with potential long-range consequences.
Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) assessments are referred to as objective medical testing, and are considered the most reliable medical tests that can be performed.
An EMG measures a muscle’s response to nerve stimulation, while the NCV measures the health of the nerves themselves. When the tests are performed in tandem, their overall accuracy can be multiplied and may be used along with other important health information to determine an accurate neuromuscular diagnosis.
EMG and NCV assessments are conducted to determine the extent of muscle and nerve damage due to genetic, chemical or physical causes.
Common symptoms for muscle damage include difficulty moving or increased pain with movement, along with weakness, soreness and bruising. Nerve damage has a wide range of symptoms similar to muscle damage, including prickling or tingling sensations, weakness, numbness, twitching and paralysis. It is often recommended that accident victims with these symptoms obtain an EMG and NCV as soon as possible.
Finding a convenient means of obtaining an EMG and NCV on personal injury medical liens for your clients may have seemed difficult — even before the current pandemic.
