EMG/NCV: EMG/NCV stands for electromyography/nerve conduction velocity. This may be helpful in determining the cause of neck or back pain, nerve pain, numbness or weakness.
EEG: EEG stands for electroencephalography and is used to measure the brain's electrical activity through electrodes attached to the scalp. It can help evaluate seizures, fainting or confusion spells.
Botulinum Toxin: Botox can be given in our clinic to relieve spasticity (frozen joints), Dystonia (stiff muscles), headaches, certain back pains, excessive axillary sweating and involuntary eye blinking.
Deep brain Stimulation: DBS is a surgically implanted device that can be adjusted in our office. DBS is used to help certain patients with tremor, Parkinson's disease or involuntary movements.
Lumbar Puncture: LP or spinal tap is an 'in office' procedure to evaluate cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). It can help diagnose multiple sclerosis, infection or CSF pressure problems.
Other services not offered in the office but available in New Braunfels or at a location you prefer:
MRI / CT / X-Ray: MRI uses non-invasive, non-radiating methods to visualize the brain and spinal cord with great detail. CT uses low-dose radiation to evaluate certain brain and spinal cord disease.
