We regularly perform EMG studies evaluating nerve and muscle functioning. You also have access to advanced testing options that are not widely available, including skin punch biopsies for peripheral neuropathy. These tests help you receive the treatments that meet your needs.
Treatments often include medications and therapies that help you get relief from stubborn symptoms and slow disease progression. Doctors work with physical, occupational and speech therapists to tailor therapies, so you get the more of each session.
