This two-and-a-half day course will focus on the practical approach to electromyography in the diagnosis and management of neuromuscular disorders. Lectures will cover the clinical and neurophysiologic assessments of compression neuropathies, radiculopathies, plexopathies, various types of generalized neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, myopathies, as well as the fundamentals of nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography and ultrasonographic evaluation of carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar neuropathy.

There will be live demonstrations to illustrate nerve conduction techniques, muscle identification for needle electromyography and ultrasound evaluation of median and ulnar nerves. Emphasis will be placed on the latest treatment options for patients with various types of peripheral neuropathies.

A special two-hour session on the clinical uses of botulinum toxin in the treatment of spasticity, cervical dystonia, and other movement disorders will be presented. Participants will receive an update on the assessment and treatment of patients with neuromuscular disorders so that they may enhance their clinical practices.

This course will help physicians understand the technical aspects of EMG, as well as the clinical uses and limitations of the procedure. The presentation of each topic will be both simple and practical. It will appeal to clinicians who order and read EMG reports and to those interested in performing EMG.
