Neurology

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, functions, and organic disorders of the nerves and the nervous system.

The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It has two major divisions:
  • Central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord
  • Peripheral nervous system: all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin, and other "sensory receptors"
Some of the conditions that neurologists may treat include:
  • Headache disorders
  • Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy
  • Movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease
  • Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease or Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS)

Neurologists do not perform surgery. If a patient requires surgery, they will be referred to a neurosurgeon.

Neurodiagnostics Electromyography (EMG) Testing

Reid Neurology Associates not only has skilled technicians and practitioners who can diagnose conditions via electromyography but also a group of board-certified neurologists who can further evaluate and treat neurological conditions that are discovered using these studies. If you have questions about the diagnosis or treatment of a neurologic condition, please contact us at (765) 939-7711.

What is electromyography?

Electromyography (EMG) is a test used to assess the health of the peripheral nervous system -- the system that controls our voluntary and involuntary movements. The study determines the electrical activity of a nerve by measuring the speed and strength of signals between two or more points along the pathway of the nerve.

The needle electromyography exam records electrical activity of a muscle by inserting a needle electrode directly into the muscle. A nerve conduction study uses surface electrodes to measure the speed and strength of signals traveling between two or more points.

What conditions can EMG be used to diagnose?

EMG helps with the evaluation of symptoms including weakness, numbness, and neuropathic pain that might be caused by the peripheral nervous system. Neurological conditions that can be diagnosed via EMG include:

  • Polyneuropathy (i.e. diabetic neuropathy, along with inflammatory neuropathies such as Guillain-Barre syndrome and CIDP)
  • Mononeuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome or cubital tunnel syndrome in the upper extremity and peroneal neuropathy in the lower extremity
  • Radiculopathy originating from the cervical and lumbar spine
  • Plexopathies in the upper and lower extremities
  • Disorders of the neuromuscular junction including myasthenia gravis
  • Motor neuron disease such as ALS
  • Myopathy

Patient feedback

Patient review, March 2022

Reid Neurology

Dr. Gogginsis incredible, he is kind, caring & he listens if I have an issue with myhealth, he has always been so helpful & informative with any questions Ihave.

Dr. Croswell

Dr. Croswell knew from an early age he wanted to go into healthcare. He enjoys meeting new people, hearing their stories and helping them with their medical problems. Being able to connect with patients through their stories is one of the best parts for him.

Dr. Goggins

Dr. Goggins grew up in Linton, IN (near Terre Haute), and has a very interesting background. He has experience as a financial representative, and insurance salesman, Sales, direct patient nursing care, and became the resident physician at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Dr. McMillion

Dr. McMillion worked as a neurologist for the U.S. Army for five years, serving in South Korea, Afghanistan and Honolulu. He is glad to be back seeing patients in his home state and close to Selma, IN, where he grew up.

Dr. Raynor

Dr. Raynor is an Indiana native and is also an adjunct clinical professor of neurology at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He brings with him a wide variety of academic research and teaching experience.

Nationally recognized stroke care

Reid Health has been recognized by the American Heart Association, receiving the organization's Gold Plus Get With The Guidelines® - Stroke quality achievement award for its commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, ultimately leading to more lives saved and reduced disability.

Stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the country. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood and oxygen it needs, so brain cells die. Early stroke detection and treatment are key to improving survival, minimizing disability, and accelerating recovery times.

Get With The Guidelines - Stroke is an in-hospital program for improving stroke care by promoting consistent adherence to the latest research- and evidence-based guidelines, which can minimize the long-term effects of a stroke and even prevent death.

Reid also has received the American Heart Association's Target: Stroke Honor Roll EliteSM award. To qualify, hospitals must meet specific criteria that reduce the time between an eligible patient's arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster alteplase.

Additionally, Reid has received the association's Target: Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll award. The recognition aims to ensure patients with Type 2 diabetes, who might be at higher risk for complications, receive the most up-to-date, evidence-based care when hospitalized due to stroke.
