Our practice consists of Board Certified Neurologists serving Alabama. Our neurology practice is located in Montgomery, AL. If you have just recently scheduled your first appointment then we ask that you print and fill out the three forms listed above. Please bring these to the appointment so that we may see you as quickly as possible. The site has an extensive directory of common neurological problems in order to help you gather information about your condition.
NCV: Nerve conduction velocity
This test measures how quickly the nerves in your arms and legs conduct electrical signals. It’s often used to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome or neuropathy.
EMG: Needle electromyography
Often performed along with nerve conduction studies. Electromyography measures the electrical discharges produced in your muscles by use of a small needle electrode.
An electroencephalogram is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain. Electrodes are attached to your scalp and is one of the main diagnostic tests in diagnosing and treating epilepsy.
A lumbar puncture (spinal tap) is a minimally invasive test that removes a small amount of spinal fluid to record the opening pressure, look for signs of infection, multiple sclerosis, and cancer.
Your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Repetitive nerve stimulation
In this nerve conduction study, doctors attach electrodes to your skin over the muscles to be tested. Doctors send small pulses of electricity through the electrodes to measure the nerve’s ability to send a signal to your muscle.
Routine EEGs only record brain activity for 20-40 minutes. A seizure may occur every 3-6 hrs and a regular EEG may not record infrequent seizure activity.
Botulinum toxin injections
A toxin derived from bacteria used in very small amounts to treat chronic headaches, spasmodic torticollis, blepharospasm, hemi-facial, and hyperhidrosis.
BAEP, SEP, & VEP:
Evoked potential study
An evoked potential test measures the time it takes for nerves to respond to stimulation. The size of the response is also measured. Nerves from different areas of the body may be tested.
