We got the results from the MRI today. (To recap for those that are new to my blog: My DS had to get an MRI done because of his toe walking.)
According the MRI DS bone structure in the foot is normal. So I was thankful to hear that. The next step is to call the hospital tomorrow to schedule an EMG/NCV.
NCV=Nerve conduction study
The podiatrist explain today that these tests need to be done to be sure that my DS brain, nerves, and muscles are communicating with each other properly.
That's all I have to share at this time. I'm thankful to learn that the bone structure is normal, but frustrated to learn that we need more testing done.
The doctor also mention that DS MIGHT need a foot manipulation under anesthesia done too. That's NOT surgery or anything like that. The doctor during the visit was manipulating DS feet, but felt there has been some resistance on DS part. Not anything DS can really help, just resistance, almost in an involuntary way. It's not anything that DS is purposely doing per say.
So doing an manipulation under anesthesia would help the Dr get a better understanding of what DS true range of motion is because under anesthesia DS will be totally relaxed.
