Back X-ray and General Evaluation
Clays Mill Chiropractic Center uses x-rays to determine areas of spinal subluxations. A very thorough examination of the x-rays would be performed not only for spinal and/or soft tissue pathologies, but also spinal biomechanical problems that can interfere with normal nervous system function.
Chiropractic adjustments are given to reduce spinal subluxations that interfere with normal nervous system function. A Chiropractor can use his hands, an instrument and other tools to produce the spinal adjustment. Once adjustments are given the usual side affect is health reflected by a return to normal function and the patient feels better physically and mentally.
Specializing in Sports Injuries
Whatever sport you are in whether it is walking, running, biking, football, hockey, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, basketball, etc, you would greatly benefit from Chiropractic Care. Many professional athletes understand that spinal adjustments make them perform better and heal faster. Dr. Paul has had specific Sports Injury training that is very beneficial to any athlete regardless of their skill level. If Chiropractic’s good enough for the pros, how much better would you be with it?
Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Information
Dr. Frangedakis is a specialist in Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. This type of sonography takes years to master with a vast knowledge of anatomy and function of the musculoskeletal system.
Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool for the imaging evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders. Recently, there has been increased demand for expanding the clinical applications of musculoskeletal sonography. Continual improvement in technology, wide availability, and relatively lower cost are factors contributing to the growth of sonography, which is becoming more frequently utilized in the routine evaluation of the musculoskeletal system.
Compared to other cross-sectional modalities, ultrasound has several inherent advantages. Among these are ready accessibility, portability, quick scan time, and better patient tolerability. The dynamic, real-time nature of sonography requires personal interaction with the patient, often resulting in a more directed examination, specific for each individual. Scanning technique is easily modified, as needed, to optimize the diagnostic effectiveness of the study. Advances in technology with higher frequency transducers, color/power Doppler capability, and extended field-of-view (FOV) function have facilitated the progressive development of sonography. Newer innovative features such as tissue harmonics and 3-D imaging may prove to be beneficial in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders.
What is an Ultrasound?
Ultrasound is a painless test used to examine different organs and tissues of the body. Ultrasound machines generate high-frequency sound waves. These waves are pointed to a specific area using a hand-held device called a transducer. The waves bounce off the subject area and are picked up by the transducer. The computer then processes the waves into images.
What Areas are tested in Musculoskeletal Diagnostic Ultrasound?
Areas Dr. Frangedakis can test are shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles, feet and muscles.
Reason for Test?
Muscle tears, masses, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries, carpel tunnel, plantar fasciitis, deep venous thrombosis are reasons to perform a musculoskeletal ultrasound. It can also be used to help guide care and to show improvements from continued Chiropractic care.
