In a patient who has tingling in the hands it is important to know if there is nerve damage and if so, which nerves are involved and what is causing the injury so that proper treatment could be started. If the problem is ignored the injury could continue and the symptoms could get worst. Initially the tingling is infrequent but with time the injury could get worst leading to more constant pain and tingling. Over time the patient could develop weakness and paralysis of the fingers. Our office specializes in diagnosis of nerve and muscle disease.
In order to find out what is causing tingling we run the latest testing to properly diagnose the problem. Generally patients require nerve testing, called EMG nerve conduction study, with which we could find out which nerves are injured and why. We specialize in performing EMG Nerve conduction studies. Based on the results we might use imaging techniques and the most advanced lab testing when required to make the correct diagnosis.
