I am a consultant clinical neurophysiologist. I received my training at the Walton centre for neurology and neurosurgery, Liverpool.
Clinical neurophysiology is a diagnostic specialty that provides support to a range of medical professionals in arriving at a diagnosis. The diagnosis is based on a number of simple tests that are called nerve conduction studies and EMG (electromyography). These tests help in evaluation of the peripheral nervous system.
The common conditions that can be diagnosed by these tests include, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy, peripheral neuropathy and other muscle/nerve disorders.
