  1. 1. 1-718-769-2521 Pf-NCS Testing For Earlier Detection of Neuropathy and RadiculopathyNerve conditions like neuropathy andradiculopathy are very difficult to localize asthey have a radiating pain effect. Pain fibernerve conduction study helps to identify andlocate them effectively and well in advancecompared to other diagnosis procedure.Neuropathy and radiculopathy are nerveconditions caused bydisease or trauma andaffect nerve or nervegroups, resulting in pain,weakness, and numbness.Pf-NCS testing or pain fibernerve conduction study isthe most effective methodof detecting the source ofpain caused by these medical conditions.In ailments such as neuropathy (damage tonerves of the peripheral nervous system) andradiculopathy (pinched nerves), injury occursat or near the root of the nerve. However, thepain can radiate to other parts of the body. For 1-718-769-2521
  2. 2. 1-718-769-2521example, nerve root irritation in the neck canlead to weakness in the forearm. This maycause patients to point out the wrong nerve asthe source of the pain. If treatment is directedto the wrong body part or nerve group,treatment may not be as successful. Pain fibernerve conduction study helps to resolve allthis.The pf-NCS test is a comprehensive neuro-diagnostic test which provides rapid,noninvasive, highly objective and effectiveresults in locating, quantifying and identifyingthe right nerve root lesion. Pf-NCS testingunlike MRI and X-rays can identify pain andindicate and quantify the sensitivity rangingfrom slight to severe.Advantages of the Innovative PainFiber Nerve Conduction Study • More Reliable then Conventional Diagnostic TechniquesWhat makes this novel technique moreeffective than other diagnostic exams such asSSEP (Somatosensory Evoked Potentials), NCV(Nerve Conduction Velocity), and EMG(Electrical Muscle Graph) is it is not dependent 1-718-769-2521
  3. 3. 1-718-769-2521on gross myelin loss. EMG, for example,depends on nerve demyelination/degenerationwhich takes a long time to detect, and there isless chance that it will show up in the tests aspositive. EMG/NCV is guided by the physicalexam, which is why it is unsuccessful indetecting the source of pain. Nerve conductionstudy on the other hand does a thorough NCSmeasurement and can predict radiculopathyand neuropathy much earlier. • Effectively Detects the Severity of PainIt can effectively measure the damage causedby the nerve or the nerve group. This helps thephysicians to customize the treatment andprioritize areas based on severity of the pain.It effectively singles out the damaged nerveand quantifies the lesions numerically. This isone of the reasons why it can identifyneuropathy and radiculopathy well in advance. • Independent Measure for PainWhen trying to identify the source of pain,physicians usually ask the patient to point outthe area where they are experiencing the pain.Studies show that as pain increases, sensitivitydecreases which means that the patient is less 1-718-769-2521
  4. 4. 1-718-769-2521likely to localize pain source accurately. This isa major reason for failure in pain interventiontreatment. This novel nerve conduction studyhelps by identifying pain independent to thepatient’s perception of pain. It can accuratelypinpoint the source and also measure theseverity of the pain on a scale of slight tochronic. This technique also preventsmalingering.A Reliable Healthcare CenterReputable healthcare centers offering effectivenon-invasive pain management treatmentssuch as spinal decompression, chiropractictreatment and physical therapy now offer thepain fiber nerve conduction study. Pf-NCStesting effectively determines the source ofpain well in advance and prevent aggravationof the condition. This helps avoid the need forsurgery and allows the specialists to providethe appropriate treatment to set right theaffected nerves and help patients return to ahealthy, pain-free and more active lifestyle.Posted By: HealthQuest3500 Nostrand AveBrooklyn, NY 11229Email: info@hqbk.comPhone: (718)-769-2521Fax: (718)–646-1911 1-718-769-2521
