Nerve Conduction Studies
Nerve conduction studies measure nerve sensations. Your capacity to feel sensations in your foot and ankle have an impact on whether a simple wound might worsen over time. One of the biggest dangers in non-healing wounds is that, when a cut or abrasion is not felt, it can easily be overlooked and become infected. An undetected wound does not receive proper treatment to prevent infections.

How Nerve Conduction Studies Work
Nerve conduction studies measure how effective the nerves are sending signals throughout the body. The study can also diagnose the conditions causing numbness in the lower extremity. Using small electrodes placed on the body, this study checks for interruptions in the communication process from the brain to the body. An electromyogram is also used to locate diseases and problems in the muscular and nervous system that might be the impacting sensation.
Benefits of Nerve Conduction Studies
The biggest advantage for nerve conduction studies is that it is very accurate in locating nerve damage allowing for a faster diagnosis of the wound condition. It is very helpful in uncovering the cause for the tingling sensation and loss of feeling in the lower extremity area.
