We are fortunate enough to use cutting edge technology in order to test and evaluate multiple parts of human health and performance. We offer a wide range of tests, including metabolic testing, gait analysis and an diagnostic ultrasound scans.
Diagnostic Ultrasound Scans
At our practice, a diagnostic ultrasound scan can help evaluate musculoskeletal conditions. An external ultrasound scan is a non-invasive imaging method that allow us to observe internal structures in the body without any harmful radiation. Ultrasound scans are performed by a sonographer, an specialist in ultrasound procedure.
Due to its high resolution and accuracy, it is an invaluable tool for diagnosing joint and tissue related diseases or injuries. An ultrasound device uses high frequency sound waves to create images of the internal structures of the muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments.
During ultrasound examinations, a small amount of lubricating gel will be placed on the affected area to allows the ultrasound probe to look inside the structure.
A musculoskeletal ultrasound scan can identify a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, such as tendon and ligament tears, muscle tear or strain, inflammation, bone fracture and various other joint-related issues.
It also helps to eliminate potential causes of pain which may not be visible on an X-ray or CT scan.
Metabolic testing is our most comprehensive test which measures how your body utilizes energy from food to create energy for physical activity and daily life.
This test gives us valuable insight into the efficiency of your metabolism, helping us understand what changes can be made to help you improve performance, exercise more efficiently and to help with weight loss.
