Neurosensory Testing

Many medical conditions, such as diabetes, can affect the nerve supply to the lower extremities. Also, nerve compression injuries, such as tarsal tunnel syndrome, can result in foot pain. To properly diagnose and treat these conditions, accurate neurological testing is critical. At the Foot & Ankle Institute, we utilize nerve sensory testing equipment developed at the Institute for Peripheral Nerve Surgery, Johns Hopkins University ( This state-of-the-art technology allows for very early detection of nerve injury and is completely painless. Additionally we also have EMG (electromyography) testing available. Early and reliable nerve testing is critical for the proper management if neurological injuries.
