Juris Medicus has experts in electrodiagnostic medicine who are licensed in physiatry, neurology, and physical therapy.
Electrodiagnostic (EDX) medicine is the medical subspecialty that applies neurophysiologic techniques for the evaluation of patients with potential impairment of the nervous, neuromuscular, and/or muscular systems. An EDX examination is a medical consultation in the specialized area of neuromuscular diseases using electrophysiologic techniques requiring detailed knowledge of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders. Electrophysiologic data is generated by a variety of procedures, including motor and sensory nerve conduction (NCV) studies, needle electrode electromyography (EMG), repetitive nerve stimulation, reflex latencies, evoked potentials, twitch tensions, exercise tests, and autonomic nervous system tests. Many of these procedures are also used for monitoring nerve and muscle function during surgical procedures or for assessment of therapeutic treatments.
An EDX expert may be a neurologist, PMR specialist, physiatrist, or physical therapist with specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular diseases and is also an expert in the application of the neurophysiologic techniques used to study these disorders.
