Electrodiagnostic evaluation of lower extremity neurogenic problems.Foot Ankle Clin. 2011 Jun; 16(2):225-42.FA
Electrodiagnosis is a powerful tool for evaluating lower extremity disorders that stem from the peripheral nervous system. Electrodiagnostic testing can help differentiate neurogenic versus non-neurogenic causes of complaints such as pain, weakness, and paresthesias. It can help practitioners pinpoint the anatomic location and reveal the underlying pathology in peripheral nerve lesions. This article focuses on the electrodiagnostic evaluation of neurogenic processes that present as foot and ankle symptoms.
