Entrapment Neuropathies and Nerve Conduction Studies

Session Type: ARHP Concurrent Sessions
Tuesday, November 8, 2011: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
W192b (McCormick Place West)
Clinical  SessionSelect

Session Overview:
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
