Entrapment neuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome are commonly encountered in a musculoskeletal clinical practice. Several electrodiagnostic studies are commonly ordered, but the quality of studies is quite variable. There is a need for the clinician to understand the basic physiology of the test to ensure the correct diagnosis and develop a treatment program.
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
- review the timing of ordering nerve conduction studies
- assess whether the studies’ conclusions are consistent with the clinical assessment
- discuss management options based on outcomes
