How do your physicians diagnose?
Our doctors’ diagnostic tools are the same as those used by other physicians, such as exams and specialty tests. We also use assessment tools and techniques like electromyography and nerve conduction studies. These methods help doctors diagnose conditions that cause pain, weakness and numbness.
