i have had a few of these nerve tests. i have permanent nerve damge. the test does hurt somewht and is uncomfrotable. it will determine if there is anykind of nerve damage present.
there sre no x-rays or stuff like that used for the test. the d. willuse this machine and take this needle hooke dup to the machine and stick your dad in the places he needs. the needle shoots electricalpulses ,and if there is nerve pinching or damage the machine will say so. god luck..
