Carpal/Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
A poorly functioning cerebellum may lead be the cause to decreased sports and functional performance — this applies to all types of sports athletes, cross-fit, weight training/bodybuilding and much more.
According to the CDC:
Over 800,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture.
Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries [TBI (1)].
In 2015, the total medical costs for falls totaled more than $50 billion(2). Medicare and Medicaid shouldered 75% of these costs.
Electrodiagnosis is an umbrella term which encompasses the wave-form morphological studies known as Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) and interpretation of Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) and Needle Electromyography (nEMG).
The collected data from these studies provides the physician with necessary information which evaluates the physiological function of the peripheral nervous system. This information is this used to determine the outcome of neurological conditions resulting from motor vehicle accidents, impact/compression traumas, and myopathies like muscular dystrophy.
Dr. Revels has obtained his 150 hours in NCS from Clinical Neurosciences Institute, LLC: https://www.cninstitute.org/.
