A safe and highly effective alternative to surgery, pain management, and long term chiropractic or physical therapy treatment programs.

Arterial and Venous Doppler scans use ultrasound (sound waves) to make pictures of the actual veins and arteries in your arms and legs.

You will lay on the table and a handheld device (transducer) will pass over the limb of concern. The scans can detect blood clots and problems with valves in the veins. They can also detect the severity and location of any blockages in the arteries that supply your legs or arms with blood flow.

Your provider uses this information to determine the best course of treatment for you if needed.

Bone Density Screening (DEXA Scan) for osteoporosis is a quick and non-invasive test that uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body (usually the lower spine and hips) to measure bone loss.

It is used to diagnose osteoporosis and to assess a patient’s risk for developing fractures.

We offer IRIS scans, an alternative to a dilated eye exam, that can be done in office by sitting in front of a machine that will flash a bright light into your eye and take a picture of the back of your eye (the retina).

This screens for diabetic retinopathy that is the leading complication of  diabetes that causes damage to the blood vessels of the retina (the light sensitive tissue that lines the back part of the eye, allowing you to see fine detail).

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in working-age Americans and we recommend all diabetics have this screening once per year.

An ECHO uses ultrasound (sound waves) to make pictures of your heart. It is non-invasive.

You will lay on the table and a handheld device (transducer) will pass over your chest.

Echocardiogram can detect many different types of heart problems. Some of these can be minor and pose no serious harm to you. Others can be signs of serious heart disease or other heart problems. An echocardiogram can provide information on:

  • The size of your heart. An enlarged heart can be the result of high blood pressure, leaky heart valves or heart failure.
  • Heart muscles that are weak or aren’t pumping as strong.
  • Problems with your heart’s valves. These may include: growths/tumors on the valves and valves that don’t open as easily (stenosis) or don’t form a complete seal when closed (regurgitation).
  • Abnormalities in the structure of your heart. An echocardiogram can detect a variety of heart abnormalities, such as congenital heart defects.

EKG is a  non-invasive test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. It is used to detect heart problems (irregular beats/rhythms, damage to the heart, and the effects of medications or devices (i.e. pacemaker)).

During an EKG, sensors (electrodes) are placed on your chest and limbs for a few minutes while a machine reads the electrical activity of the heart.

PFT is used to assess for respiratory diseases. This is a group of non-invasive tests that will tell us how well your lungs are working.

It will measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow and gas exchange. This information will help diagnose and treat certain lung/respiratory disorders.
