Doppler Ultrasounds are used in blood flow studies, and can assist in detecting abnormal flow within an artery or blood vessel. This can help to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including blood clots and poor circulation. A Doppler Ultrasound is a noninvasive, painless procedure that doesn’t expose you to harmful radiation.
May Help Diagnose Many Conditions, Including:
- Blood clots
- Venous insufficiency
- Heart valve defects
- Congenital heart disease
- Blocked arteries
- and more
Ankle Brachial Indexes (ABI’s) are also better conducted with a Doppler Ultrasound in order to provide more accurate measurements for compression stockings.
Our expert physical therapists have years of training in the proper administration of Doppler Ultrasounds, providing you with the best experience possible.
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging (MSKUS) is a non-invasive technology used to assist your healthcare professionals in diagnosing conditions by providing an image of tendons, ligaments, muscles, soft tissue, and the surfaces of bones.
May Help Identify Abnormalities like:
- muscle and tendon tears
- soft tissue masses
- inflammatory joints disease
- and more
MSKUS is a valuable testing option for individuals who are unable to receive certain diagnostic imaging examinations due to many different limitations
Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) are used to measure the health of your nerves. Mild electrical stimulation is administered to the skin directly overlying the nerve. The response is measure by a second set of electrodes applied to the surface of the skin. This impulse produces a visual signal on a computer monitor and wen analyzed it can provide information about the condition of the nerve.
Electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerves control the muscles in the body by electrical signals (impulses), and these impulses cause the muscles to react in specific ways. Nerve and muscle disorders cause the muscles to react in abnormal ways. During an Electromyography study, a very small pin is inserted in the muscle that helps us evaluate the condition of the muscle.
It is appropriate to use these tests to identify the cause of back pain, neck pain, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, burning sensation in the hands or feet and weakness in the arms, legs or hands.
