THE DOCTORS AND NURSES OF NAA PROVIDE CONSULTATION AND CARE FOR DISORDERS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. examples of these include:
Stroke and Cerebrovascular disease
Memory Loss and Dementia
Seizures and Epilepsy
Spinal cord disease
Neuropathy, Myopathy, Radiculopathy
While some disorders of the nervous system are more common than others, the Doctors at NAA have decades of experience and medical training to be able to provide the most effective and appropriate treatment for you, our patient.
In addition to consultation and care, we are able to perform certain non-surgical PROCEDURES in the comfort of our office, Including:
Botox, Myobloc, Xeomin – For treatment of chronic migraine, spasticity, dystonia, and other indications. During this procedure your doctor will inject the medication into the appropriate muscles of the body for the discussed indication and may use EMG for guidance when treating spasticity or dystonia.
Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies – This test is two parts. Please allow an hour. Please do not wear any lotion, oils, or creams on the extremities to be tested. The first part involves small shocks to the nerves in the arms or legs to record how your nerves conduct electricity. The second part, the EMG, entails using a small needle to listen to your muscles. It does not give any shocks. This test is used to diagnose common neuropathies, such as polyneuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and ulnar neuropathy. It can also diagnose radiculopathy, myopathy, and neuromuscular junction disorders.
EEG (Electroencephalogram) – This is a test that involves placement of electrodes on your scalp to record brain waves for evaluation of possible seizures or epilepsy as well as certain types of memory loss and confusion. Please allow up to an hour for this test. Hair should be clean and dry.
Carotid doppler and Transcranial doppler – This test uses ultrasound to look at the blood vessels in the neck and head as part of an evaluation of cerebrovascular disease.
Occipital Nerve Blocks – This procedure uses a combination between a long acting anesthetic and steroid to treat certain types of headaches. The medicine is injected over the occipital nerves at the back of the head.
All visits are by appointment only. If you are not already a patient of NAA, your initial visit will require a referral. Existing patients may contact our scheduler to make an appointment. If you wish to become a patient of NAA, talk to your healthcare provider to obtain a referral.
