Obtaining a full recovery from your injury or ailment starts with getting a proper diagnosis. Sometimes patients come in to Wellspring Health and it’s simple for our Orange City chiropractor to identify the problem and recommend a corrective course of action. But in many other cases, the problem is not so clear-cut. It is at times like this that we rely on in-office diagnostic tools and testing to identify the root cause of a patient’s pain and develop a treatment plan.
In-Office Diagnostic Testing Speeds Recovery
The Complete Wellness Center of Orange City utilizes many different types of diagnostic tests to see into the body and identify conditions and issues that are causing the patient pain or dysfunction. We believe that in-office testing is important – it allows us to obtain a quicker diagnosis which means faster results for our patients.
In-office diagnostic services include:
- X-rays. In-office x-rays make it possible for our chiropractor to diagnose a condition in minutes. Without this service, we’d have to send patients to an imaging center and then wait for the images to be released to us. That could take days.
- Nerve Conduction Studies & Electromyography (NCV/EMG). This test is used to diagnose nerve damage or destruction. NCVs and EMGs help us pinpoint the exact nerves that are impinged, eliminating trial and error or guesswork.
- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK US). Ultrasound is invaluable in diagnosing strains, tears, sprains, and other soft tissue injuries. In-office diagnosis makes it possible for us to identify areas of concern and determine the best immediate course of action.
- Range of Motion (ROM) & Manual Muscle Testing (MMT). These tests digitally and manually measure strength and movement and can be used to assess joint integrity and flexibility.
Overall, in-office diagnostic testing provides our patients with both better care and a higher quality of care. We are able to use tests to diagnosis conditions at the start of treatment to choose the best course of action, but by offering these services in-office, we can also return to them and use them as treatment goes on to gauge progress.
