Medical Thermography For Weather Sensitive Sympathetic Pain (Sympathetic Galvonic Skin Studies)

Medical Thermography For Weather-Sensitive Pain (Sympathetic Galvonic Skin Studies)

Medical Thermography for weather-sensitive pain is a sensitive, objective test that utilizes an electronic infrared imaging device to measure the body’s skin temperature (sympathetic galvonic skin response). The procedure is harmless, non-invasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.

While safeguards are built into the test to assure that the findings are both consistent and reproducible over time, there are several “Do’s and “Don’ts” for the procedure that can help minimize those things that can inappropriately impact the outcome. · Don’t sunbathe or use a tanning bed for 48 hours prior to the exam. · Do not have an EMG/ Nerve Conduction study, use a Tens unit, have physical therapy or an acupuncture treatment prior to the exam. · Do shower and keep your skin clean of any ointments or lotion prior to the exam.

Diagnostic Paraspinal Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography

Pain Cure: Diagnostic Testing

Page 2

Debate has developed with respect to the use of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound for inflammatory disorders of the nerve root or spinal facets. This discussion has shifted the focus from less controversial aspects of spinal diagnostic ultrasonography including measurement of spinal canal diameter, paraspinal muscle evaluation, and monitoring of intraoperative spinal decompression. This paper will review the literature with respect to the above, and present a supporting argument for the use of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasonography in the evaluation of paraspinal conditions involving ligamentous or muscular strain. A clinical study will be presented where images are correlated to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and a case report will be presented.

Reduce Back Or Leg Pain & Increase Endurance

Gait analysis can be used to reduce back or leg pain and increase endurance.

Walking is the most convenient way to travel short distances. Free joint mobility and appropriate muscle force increases walking efficiency. As the body moves forward, one limb typically provides support (the stance limb) while the other limb is advanced (the swing limb).

Shock absorption and energy conservation are important aspects of efficient walking. Altered joint motion or absent muscle forces may increase joint reaction (contact) forces and lead subsequently to additional pathology. In the early stance phase of gait, nearly 60 percent of one’s body weight is loaded abruptly (less than 20 milliseconds) onto the stance limb.
