Dr. Roy Nini has assembled an array of diagnostic tools to aid in identifying the source of chronic pain. One of these systems is called “electrodiagnosis,” or “EDX.” This testing system can be a highly accurate method to help him see how the nerves, bones, and muscles are functioning.
Diagnosing the Source of Pain or Limited Motion
In testing the body, electrodiagnosis can provide answers and narrow down the possibilities. In these tests, a very fine needle, which functions as an electrode, is inserted through the skin and into the muscle structure. The patient is then asked to flex the muscle by bending or contracting it. The electrical activity is displayed on a screen, which can be evaluated to determine how the muscles are responding to nerve impulses on arms or legs and how nerves are stimulated with electrical pulses.
Why Use Electrodiagnosis?
Patients who are living with ongoing pain in back, shoulders, neck, hands, or other area may need to have this diagnostic treatment to reveal how the nerves are functioning. When a body part is injured or has a condition, the electrical impulses of the nerves are affected – unfortunately, often signaling pain to the brain and leading to a reduced quality of life.
This tool allows for an accurate way to identify the source of the pain. This form of testing is often recommended for patients with the following conditions:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Muscle weakness
- Nerve damage

This diagnostic treatment is not exceptionally painful, but only slightly uncomfortable to experience. For patients who have not been able to discover the source of chronic pain, tingling, or weakness, this testing system may be an important diagnostic tool. Many musculoskeletal conditions have similar symptoms, and to find an effective treatment, it is imperative that the actual problem is correctly identified.
Analyzing Test Results
To correctly analyze the results of these cutting-edge tests requires a great depth of knowledge of body structure. Dr. Nini is a leader in the field of non-invasive, regenerative treatments for the musculoskeletal system, and may use electrodiagnosis testing to help you find a non-surgical treatment that produces results.
