Your body is a well performing dynamic machine and we can prove how well you are functioning through tests. Two tests that are able to illustrate how well you are functioning are the Nerve Conduction Velocity test (NCV) and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound.
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is commonly referred to as a sonogram, it uses high-frequency sound waves to map the density of tissues within the areas studied. The data from this process is then converted into an image that can show inflammation in nerve roots, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. An ultrasound is also excellent for showing any scarring, calcification, sprain, or strain.
A probe moves along the surface of the skin to scan different areas of the body. A gel medium is supplied to the skin to ensure proper contact with the probe. The display screen shows an internal view of the designated area as the probe receives the sound waves which have been reflected from the body.
