Clinical Responsibilities

In his clinical rehabilitation work, Dr. Ma specializes in helping patients with arthritis and other painful musculoskeletal conditions. ?Often, arthritis patients simply take medication to relieve the pain,? he notes. ?In rehabilitation, we show them how to relieve their pain through exercise, by strengthening the muscles around the joint in order to take pressure off the painful area, and by changing how their body weight is distributed.? Since everyone?s pattern of arthritis or musculoskeletal pain is unique, he adds, it?s important to customize each patient?s treatment through a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, pool therapy and other approaches.; ; When designing treatment programs for patients, Dr. Ma draws on the intimate knowledge of neuromuscular conditions he?s developed as an expert in electromyography (EMG)?a technique that measures the electrical activity of various muscles. Much of his practice is devoted to performing EMG evaluations on patients referred by a wide range of specialists, including rheumatologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, and internists.; In addition to providing diagnoses, Dr. Ma often consults with the referring doctor about treatment options?such as whether the patient needs surgery or can benefit from a more conservative approach instead. As the director of Rusk?s residency program in electrodiagnostics, he also spends considerable time instructing Rusk?s rehabilitation medicine residents and other physicians on electromyography techniques. ?I love the EMG,? he says, ?and I love teaching it to others.?; ?When I began in the mid-1970s, only a few physicians in New York did electromyography,? he recalls. ?Today, many people do it. But interpreting an EMG result correctly takes a great deal of training?so physicians still like to send me their most complicated cases, or refer patients for a second opinion.? Dr. Ma, whose Nerve Conduction Handbook is an essential reference for EMG practitioners, uses electromyography to diagnose and assess various neuromuscular problems, including pinched nerves, neuropathy (nerve damage) due to diabetes, medication, physical compression or other causes, musculoskeletal pain, central nervous system conditions, and muscle diseases like myasthenia gravis (an autoimmune disorder that can cause muscle weakness or pain).; ;
