Motility testing is done to assess motor function of the upper esophageal sphincter, esophageal body and lower esophageal sphincter. The motility test is important in proper evaluation of suspected gastrointestinal motility disorders, allowing patients to receive correct diagnosis and treatment.
Esophageal manometry provides information about the natural motility of your esophagus. The esophagus is a muscular tube connecting your throat to your stomach. To measure esophageal manometry a flexible, thin tube with pressure sensors is passed into your esophagus and records the present from the natural peristaltic waves present. Manometry is used to diagnose a variety of esophageal disorders. In the context of acid reflux, manometry tells us your native GI motility and helps guide us into the treatment best suited for your condition.
