In brief: Examination

A good physical examination can diagnose a compression neuropathy.
This diagnosis can be confirmed with tests such as mris and emgs(nerve tests).

In brief: Testing

To diagnose nerve root entrapment/compression, the doctor may utilize EMG and/or nerve conduction velocity tests (after clinical examination) to determine where the compression is located.
Sometimes radiographic studies, such as MRI or ct, may be used as well.
