Often diagnostic testing and lab work are a necessary component in fully diagnosing a chiropractic condition. HealthQuest Physical Medicine is a leader in Arlington’s diagnostic testing centers. We offer diagnostic testing in our office, both to save you time and to provide you the peace of mind of working with one of our highly trained team members.
There are a variety of diagnostic tests we run using the most advanced lab analysis to ensure that we advise the best treatment for a patient’s condition.
Allergy and Immune Response Testing: Also known as ALCAT testing, this simple blood test reveals food allergies potentially affecting your health. Our trained team can provide suggestions for changes in diet.
Electromyography (EMG) Testing: In some medical conditions the electrical activity of the muscles or nerves is abnormal. Electromyography (EMG) entails testing the electrical activity of muscles, which may help chiropractors verify a patient’s condition.
Functioning and Performance Testing: To adequately evaluate spinal injuries, functioning and performance testing assists our physical therapists in assessing the degree of damage to the spine.
Hormone and Adrenal Testing: Hormones secreted by our endocrine glands help to regulate many body processes, so it stands to reason that hormone imbalances trigger a variety of significant physical conditions. Measuring hormone levels is often the first step in diagnosing numerous ailments related to adrenal gland dysfunction.
Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Testing: A nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) is an electrical test used to detect signs of nerve injury. The procedure measures how quickly electrical impulses move along a nerve. Symptoms of nerve damage include tingling, numbness, and burning sensations.
Radiographs: As a technology similar to x-rays, HealthQuest Physical Medicine uses radiographs to assist in diagnosing spinal and extremity injuries. Our highly trained radiographers use the lowest levels of radiation possible when performing this diagnostic test.
Vascular Screenings: Preventative vascular testing can help to detect serious problems like stroke and heart problems. This diagnostic analysis monitors blood pressure in various locations, while using ultrasonic technology to measure blood flow.
