Faculty Book: Gary Krasilovsky
Nerve Conduction Testing and Electromyography for the Physical Therapist
(Gary Krasilovsky, 2012)
This book was developed to assist physical therapy students and clinicians in learning the techniques, interpretation, and use of electroneuromyography evaluation in the differential diagnosis of patients with neuromuscular disorders. It provides the physiological basis and techniques of this diagnostic test through the use of nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography. Readers will learn the application of these techniques to the upper and lower extremities, plus the interpretation of results/reports through case studies. The book also presents differential diagnosis of abnormalities that are distributed throughout the neuromuscular system. Knowledge of basic anatomy related to peripheral nerve and root distributions is assumed. Gary Krasilovsky (Assoc. Prof., Hunter) is on the doctoral faculty in physical therapy.
