Frontera’s neurological procedures examine a patient’s nervous system.

 

Nerve conduction velocity studies

A nerve conduction velocity (NCV) study measures nerve function by testing the speed of signals through nerves. Any neuropsychological disturbance will be detected using a small amount of electrical stimulation applied to a patient’s arms and legs. The test may also be used to evaluate diseases of nerves or muscles. An NCV test shows the condition of the best surviving nerve fibers.

    • “Frontera is our one-stop shop for patient testing. Patients want to go to one place to have their tests done and they’d rather come to our office than go somewhere unfamiliar to them. And I’m especially pleased with Frontera’s stress testing. It is unique from other companies because it really shows how the heart and lungs work together, which can help me make a better diagnosis and then better help the patient stay motivated to take their medications and improve their health.”
