Mind and Body

Scientists want to make the process of clinical scientific research easier to obtain and to be widely spread. The reasons that lie behind this need is that they as scientists, feel that the communication part is what tends to drag. Leaving knowledge about new discoveries and or research behind when it comes to the development and passing on the information learned. The bottom line is that scientists want to be able to communicate and share their science discoveries better. They are tired of the long process that a new discovery has to go through and would like to bypass that altogether to have the chance to have the capacity to have an effect on clinical practice. So, what is it that the mind and body want to say? Advancements and problems involving clinical sciences that are connected to the relationships of the brain and mind in chronic pain disorders. There are the three ‘C’s: complicated, credibility and creativity.

Complicated: It is believed that human beings are extremely complicated and that embracing this complexity will help clinical practice in a positive way.

Credibility: Scientist are wanting to give evidence-based information, that shows a clear and unbiased look at speculation and what is speculation is called speculation. This is all done openly and without prejudice, peer-reviewed.

Creativity: The main difference that is seen that exists between doctors and scientists is a inconvenience. Scientists believe that if these differences can be set aside, a creative space can be created where doctors and scientists trust each other and really start to solve problems together.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.

the full thickness tear and already occurring muscle atrophy
due to misdiagnosis and not referring the patient
to proper diagnostic workup

Demonstration of how very small muscle defect is made and revealed
to be a complete tear with muscle contraction
under diagnostic sonography (not possible with MRI)
