Diagnostic Testing

At Epic Healthcare & Physical Medicine, we provide the highest quality physical medicine and natural pain management because we believe it is very important to fully understand, analyze and diagnose your injuries and/or pain. We couple both traditional medical testing and new technology or analysis techniques together to fully assess your condition. That is why we prefer to use many of the most advanced medical tests available today. Here is a list of some of the diagnostic services performed on-site:

X-RAYS – We use the lowest amount of radiation with our digital diagnostic x-rays.  Our team of doctors utilize these tests to assess not only injuries to the spine but also to the extremities as well.

ELECTROMYOGRAPHY (EMG TESTING) – With electromyography testing, our specialists can determine if there is any dysfunction or irregular activity to the function of the muscles themselves.  This test allows a more accurate diagnosis of muscle injury and impairment.

NCV TESTING (NERVE CONDUCTION VELOCITY STUDIES) – NCV tests allow our doctors to diagnose where in the body there is neurological dysfunction or impairment to a nerve.  This the gold standard test for neuralgia and neuropathy pain diagnosis and treatment.  Often times this test gives our doctors a more accurate understanding of where our patient’s peripheral neuropathy symptoms are occurring.

ALLERGY AND IMMUNE RESPONSE TESTING (ALCAT) – We employ the latest in blood testing techniques to find out if there are any cases of allergic reactions present in our patients.

MUSCLE TESTING AND IMPAIRMENT RATINGS – To assess the full extent of spinal injury, our doctors and therapists do a series of exams and tests to measure the level of physical impairment.  These tests allow us to fully evaluate the level of impairment, injury and disability, which is also an important of the medico-legal aspect of work comp and personal injury cases.
