Treatments, Therapies and Services

Torrance Memorial Physician Network neurologists are dedicated to providing comprehensive neurological care. To assist in your diagnosis and treatment, it may be necessary for our neurologist to conduct one or more of the following:

Botox Injections for Movement Disorders and Migraines

Torrance Memorial Physician Network neurologists skillfully provide Botox ® injections to treat a variety of disorders that result in abnormal postures or movements, and migraines.

Botox is the brand name of a neurotoxin that is injected under the skin with a small needle to help an overactive muscle relax by blocking a neurotransmitter (acetylcholine). Botox does not permanently deactivate muscles; repeat treatments are typically needed every three months.

Electroencephalography (EEG)

An electroencephalogram detects abnormalities in the brain waves or electrical activity of the brain and is used to diagnose disorders like a brain tumor, stroke, epilepsy or another seizure disorder.

Electromyography (EMG)

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure used to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons).

Nerve Conduction Studies (NCV)

Nerve conduction studies are used to determine nerve damage and destruction to help diagnose nerve disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome and Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Lumbar Puncture (LP)

Lumbar puncture, also known as a spinal tap, can help diagnose serious infections like meningitis; other disorders of the central nervous system, like Guillain-Barre syndrome and multiple sclerosis; or cancers of the brain or spinal cord. Sometimes doctors use lumbar puncture to inject anesthetic medications or chemotherapy drugs into the
cerebrospinal fluid.

Neurological Imaging Services: MRI, CT/CAT and Ultrasound

Neurological imaging is used to diagnose, detect, and monitor diseases, disorders and conditions like tumors, fractures, cancer and infections.
