Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) testing is a diagnostic procedure that measures the speed at which electrical impulses travel through a nerve. This test is typically done to evaluate nerve function and diagnose nerve-related conditions such as peripheral neuropathy.

NCV Testing For Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is a common condition that affects the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves that are located outside of the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can include weakness, numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet. In severe cases, it can also lead to muscle weakness, loss of reflexes, and even loss of sensation in the affected area.
NCV testing is one of the most important diagnostic tools for peripheral neuropathy. It is a non-invasive procedure that can provide valuable information about the function of the nerves and the extent of the damage.
The test is done by placing electrodes on the skin near the nerve being tested and then stimulating the nerve with a small electrical current. The time it takes for the impulse to travel from the stimulating electrode to a recording electrode is measured and used to determine the nerve’s conduction velocity. This information can be used to evaluate the overall function of the nerve and identify any areas of damage or dysfunction.
At Campbell Health Center, our team of experienced physicians will evaluate the results of your NCV test and work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
