Physical medicine provides a variety of diagnostic tests to provide the best in patient care:

Allergy and Immune Response Testing: Also known as ALCAT testing, this simple blood test uncovers food allergies that might be negatively impacting your health. If food allergies are discovered, our physical medicine professionals can provide recommendations for dietary changes.

Electromyography (EMG) Testing: Electromyography (EMG) tests the electrical activity in muscles, which may help physical medicine specialists more accurately diagnose the cause of a patient’s pain.

Functioning and Performance Testing: Before beginning chiropractic manipulations or physical therapy sessions, our physical medicine experts will first evaluate the spine to assess the level of damage the spine has endured.

Hormone and Adrenal Testing: Hormonal imbalance can lead to a variety of painful and/or aggravating symptoms. Determining adrenal gland function will help our team members create a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Testing: For patients experiencing numbness or tingling, our physical medicine experts will run a nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) to detect signs of nerve injury. By measures how the speed of electrical impulses as they travel along a nerve, our experts can determine the degree of nerve damage.

Radiographs: Campbell Medical Clinic uses radiographs to help diagnose injuries to the spine and extremities. Radiograph technicians use extremely low levels of radiation when running this diagnostic test.

Vascular Screenings: Using ultrasonic technology to measure blood flow and blood pressure, this diagnostic test can help to reveal critical vascular problems that could lead to stroke and heart problems.
