Specialists in Rockwood's Neurology Center offer the latest
in innovative technology for the diagnosis and treatment of
neurological conditions affecting adults.
Our department is subspecialty oriented with particular emphasis
in epilepsy and seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis and central
nervous system inflammatory diseases, stroke and cerebrovascular
diseases, peripheral neuropathy, ALS, myopathy, nerve injuries
including carpal tunnel syndrome, and neuromuscular disorders.
General neurology problems can be assessed with onsite EEG, EMG,
MRI and other imaging studies.
Our specialists use sophisticated studies to help diagnose which
diseases or conditions are causing damage to muscle tissues,
including lumbar punctures to collect and examine the fluid
surrounding the brain and spinal cord. The EEG
(electroencephalogram) measures the electrical activity of the
brain. An EMG (electromyogram) measures the electrical activity of
muscles at rest and during contraction, while nerve conduction
studies measure how well and how fast the nerves can send
The Main Electrodiagnostic Laboratory at Rockwood Clinic is the
first laboratory in Washington State to receive Exemplary
Laboratory Accreditation status from the American Association of
Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM).
