Reply To: EMG or not

And, according to your OT, what is it you already know? Is finger dexterity, gripping grasping and fine motor control improving, stable or getting worse?

Ditto question for the neurologist. There are multiple ‘clinical’, as in-the-office, tests that could be performed. Are those results improved, stable or declining?

Further, does ‘let your condition continue it’s clinical course’ include on-going treatment of any kind other than OT?

Running any more EMG/NCV test will not answer those questions.

Without proper, effective treatment others on this web site have continued their clinical course straight into a wheel chair. My clinical course ultimately left me unable to hold a pencil or to walk without assitive aids.

Ask your doctor about these questions.
