Electrolysis of muscles


During the electrophysiological examination of the muscles, the electrical activity of the muscle and nerve organs that move the muscles is examined. The transmission of electrical signals through the neuromuscular junction is also examined. Each voluntary muscle movement starts with a brain alert (or in the event of a reflex – the alarm starts at a point). This stimulus passes through the spinal cord, and then through the peripheral nerves, to the muscle, which triggers activation.

In this test, small electrodes are inserted into certain muscles, through which the electrical signal resulting from the contraction of the muscle is examined. In contrast, the Nerve Conduction velocity is examined by initiating an electrical signal and examining the time required for the reaction.

The frequency of the reaction is a measure of the safety of the nerve, especially the nerve cover. The neurotransmitter delivery is slow when there are injuries to the surrounding nerves (peripheral neuropathy).

This test does not involve any significant risk, although some patients claim that this test is not desirable. Some patients may experience a small electrical current during the nerve conduction test. The insertion of electrodes is a small needle, which causes minor pain, less than the injection of the muscle. But the patient may feel slight sting.

Analysis of the results

Test results can distinguish between muscular and neurotransmitter disorders.

Muscle disorder:

Inflammation of the muscles.
Congenital musculoskeletal diseases that lead to muscular dystrophy.
Musculoskeletal Disorder:

Muscle weakness of myasthenia gravis.
Nervous Disorder:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Problems caused by pressure on the nerve due to spinal problems.
Pressure on the spine or on the peripheral nerve due to a lump, tumor or abscess.
Problems caused by a disorder in the nerve envelope (peripheral neuropathy): Viral or bacterial infections including HIV infection. Diphtheria infection. Leprosy. The drugs are: vincristine, isoniazid, isoniazid, DDC, DDI, d4T). As well as metabolic disorders such as diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, alcoholism, and many other causes.
