Diagnostics are a vital component of health care. No matter how minor or severe your health concern is, if it isn’t diagnosed properly, you run the risk of not recovering from it. Diagnostic tests are incredibly important to ensure we provide you with the correct treatment and an appropriate care plan for your particular situation.
The first time you come inside our facility, we understand that you will probably have a general idea of what the problem is. Even if you don’t, you probably know where the pain occurs or what types of symptoms you are dealing with. That is a great starting point. However, without delving further into the medical concern and the function of your body, we won’t be able to provide long-term solutions and actual relief. Without proper diagnoses, we are only putting a band-aid on a battle wound, so we always seek to discover the root cause of the symptoms and we begin treatment there.

If you’ve experienced a trauma or are living with a neurological disease, we can perform noninvasive brain and neurological testing to learn how your nervous system is functioning. Just like any type of investigation, these tests are performed to figure out the issue that is causing problems. We often begin with noninvasive testing that rules out or confirms the most common issues, and we continue testing until we find out the exact root cause of your health concern.LEARN MORE
The treatment and study of the nervous system falls under the field of medicine called Neurology. Neurology handles the diagnosis of any disorders which involve the central and peripheral nervous system, including blood vessels and muscles. A neurologist is a physician who is trained in this type of medicine and will be the one investigating, diagnosing, and treat any type of neurological disorders. Our neurologists often work side by side with other specialists, such as chiropractors, physical therapists, and more. This is to ensure you get the most comprehensive care possible. A team of specialists across multiple fields of medicine will work together during your diagnostic procedures and treatment plans. Each physician will deal with his or her area of expertise and will add their suggestions to your care plan to help you find relief and optimal health as quickly, effectively, and safely as possible. Neurosurgeons, not to be mistaken for neurologists, are the doctors who perform surgery in this field.
When it comes to any nerve, brain, or spine complication, our staff will test for any disorders in these areas of your body and complete diagnostic testing to be certain we have found the root cause of your symptoms. With our diagnostic technology, we can identify a number of issues, including the following:
Neurological diagnostic testing is performed by a highly trained and experienced neurologist and usually takes a few minutes with little to no discomfort.
