What can I expect during a neurological evaluation?
During your initial consultation for neurology-related symptoms, your Southlake Neurology & Neurophysiology Clinic takes time to review your personal and family medical history, your symptoms, and your general lifestyle.
A physical exam is often the first step in diagnosing unexplained neurological symptoms. Your provider may ask you to do specific movements to assess your strength, flexibility, and reflexes. You may also need to walk around, so your physician can evaluate your gait and your coordination.
If your symptoms need further diagnostic evaluation, the Southlake Neurology & Neurophysiology Clinic medical team offer testing services like:
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
An MRI of the head is a noninvasive test that produces high-resolution images of your brain.
An EMG measures electrical activity between the spinal cord and brain to your peripheral nerve, which controls muscle movements to identify nerve or muscle dysfunction. The noninvasive test involves placing small electrodes on your nerves to record activity.
An EEG measures brain activity through sensors that attach to various areas of your scalp. The sensors record brain activity in response to changes in light or stimulus.
Once they understand the root cause of your symptoms, the Southlake Neurology & Neurophysiology Clinic designs a treatment plan to ease your symptoms and protect your long-term health.
