Diagnostics & Treatment

 

Diagnostics/tests performed in our office include:

  • X-ray
  • Electrodiagnostic Testing (EMG/NLS) - Used to detect abnormal muscle and nerve activity, electrodiagnostic testing can help diagnose problems resulting from ìpinchedî nerves, disc herniations and other nerve injuries.
  • Compartment Pressure Testing - Chronic exertional compartment syndrome commonly mimics shin splints. We offer a special test that looks for elevated pressure in the areas where you are having pain.
  • Musculoskeletal Ultrasound - This advanced imaging technology used in Olympic training rooms is now available for our patients. Ultrasound can help identify subtle soft tissue injuries, peripheral nerve entrapments and real-time information not yet available through other imaging techniques.
