Diagnostic Testing

To Test Or Not To Test

To test or not to test.  It is not uncommon to go to your health provider of choice to find out what might be ailing you.  You expect to receive a complete history and physical and then, if necessary, further testing to identify the root cause of the problem.  If the problem is simple and the severity of illness is typical then often no testing is needed and a treatment program can be initiated.   Taking the next step however requires a greater intensity of service.  By its very nature the decision to run diagnostic testing means that either the patient, physician, or both feel that more is needed.   There can be several reasons. They range from concern that the presentation may be life threatening, has significantly affected quality of life, or simply has been going on for too long.    At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA in Greenville, South Carolina we are dedicated to getting to the root cause of complex, chronic conditions so as to find, fix, and ease what hurts.  If you are looking for more than just medications that treat symptoms and want to learn about different diagnostic and treatment options log onto piedmontpmr.com to learn more.
