How To Test For Peripheral Neuropathy

You should undergo a full doctor’s evaluation with diagnostic testing prior to starting any new peripheral neuropathy treatment program.  This will help identify the root cause of your condition and allow for creation of a treatment program most suited to your specific condition.

Peripheral neuropathy is typically diagnosed using one or more of the following tests:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI):

An MRI is a common test used to evaluate the soft tissues in the body, especially the spine’s discs, joints, nerves and bones.  The test is prescribed in a weight bearing mode to better evaluate the interverbal disc spaces.

Nerve Conduction Velocity Test:

This test can measure the degree of damage in large nerve fibers, allowing your doctor to determine whether symptoms are caused by degeneration of the myelin sheath (which controls fast nerve conduction) or the axon (the nerve’s pathway).

Skin Biopsy:

This test removes a thin sample of skin to examine nerve fiber endings.  It can reveal damage to smaller nerve fibers.

EMG:

This test evaluate the nerves in the arms and legs to assess possible obstructions.
