Services We Offer



Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them. During a needle EMG, a needle electrode inserted directly into a muscle records the electrical activity in that muscle.

A nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test, another part of an EMG, uses electrode stickers applied to the skin to measure the speed and strength of signals traveling between two or more points.



An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp. EEGs are safe and painless.



A Videonystagmography (VNG) evaluates balance function by assessing eye movement. Balance-related sensors in the inner ear are linked to muscles that control eye movement. This connection enables you to move your head while keeping your eyes focused on a point.

Carotid Ultrasound


Carotid ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries. Carotid ultrasound tests for blocked or narrowed carotid arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke. The results can help your doctor determine a treatment to lower your stroke risk.



In a transcranial Doppler ultrasound, sound waves are used to obtain images of your brain. It may be used to obtain information about the blood vessels in the brain.

Bubble Study


This test is most often used to check for a Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO). With this approach, a sterile salt solution is shaken until tiny bubbles form and then is injected into a vein. The bubbles travel to the right side of your heart and appear on the echocardiogram.

If there's no hole between the left atrium and right atrium, the bubbles will simply be filtered out in the lungs. If you have a PFO, some bubbles will appear on the left side of the heart.

Neuropsychological Testing


Neuropsychological tests measure psychological functions known to be linked to a particular brain structure. They can be used to evaluate memory, executive function, attention, visual/spatial/verbal function, problem solving skills, anxiety and depression.

Botox Injections


Botox injections may be used to treat conditions such as chronic migraines, neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), painful muscle spasms (including facial muscles), spasticity after stroke, cerebral palsy and spinal injury. Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract.



Psychotherapy is a general term for treating mental health problems by talking with a psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health provider. Psychotherapy helps you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.

Cognitive Rehabilitation


Cognitive or brain rehabilitation therapy helps people relearn functions lost as a result of a brain injury. These might include daily activities such as eating, dressing, walking or speech.

Common Neurological Conditions We Treat

Traumatic Brain Injuries

What is a traumatic brain injury and how does it occur?

A TBI is a brain dysfunction caused by an outside force, usually a violent blow to the head. It often occurs as a result of a car accident or severe sports injury.

What are the effects/complications of TBI?

The effects of traumatic brain injury are rarely confined within the brain itself. There are physical, physiological, neurological and psychological components of TBI, making it challenging both to diagnose and treat.

Complications may include: difficulty completing daily tasks, diminished physical ability and performance, negative impact on self-esteem, headache and neck pain, dizziness, visual disturbance, depression, mood swings, fatigue, sleep disturbance, memory loss, PTSD, or loss of smell and taste.

In more serious cases, delayed effects of TBI can include Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease or seizures.

What treatment does uptown brain injury provide?

The services provided to treat TBI in our clinic include: comprehensive neurological consultation, videonystagmography, electromyography, electroencephalography, neurosonography, cognitive testing and rehabilitation, psychotherapy, neuropsychology, neuro ophthalmology, trigger point and occipital block injections, therapeutic botox, and referrals and interpretation of imaging studies such as MRIs.

Will insurance cover my treatment?

Treatment for TBI, as well as other neurological complications related to auto-accidents, is covered by medical payment through auto insurance, funding companies, or direct liens.
