Top 5 treatments provided by a Neurologist


The most common procedures performed by a neurologist are:


Lumbar Puncture or Spinal Tap

This is a   diagnostic procedure used to collect fluid around the spine and the brain. The doctor will insert a long needle into the spine in the lumbar region to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid. This procedure is used to diagnose conditions that affect the brain and   spine as well as deliver medication. 

Electromyography

This is a procedure that helps evaluate and record how fast and how well nerves in the body can send electrical signals. This test is performed with the help of an electrodiagnostic medicine technique known as electromyography. IT can be helpful in diagnosing conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and muscular dystrophy. 

Tensilon Test

This is the name of an intravenous injection that is given to prolong muscle stimulation and block the action of an important neurotransmitter. The neurologist will then note the muscle strength showcased during this test to indicate the existence of neurological conditions such as myasthenia gravis.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

This is a neurological test that records and measures the electrical activity going on in the brain. This test involves placing electrical sensors connected to a computer on the patient’s head. This records the activity in the brain and gives the results in the form of a graph. 

Sleep Study

Also known as a Polysomnogram, a sleep study monitors brain activity and physiological activity while a person sleeps.
