Our dynamic evaluation begins with the question, “What is the underlying cause?” Not all situations are perfectly clear right way so we need to handle loading cycles before their joints experience overload. All of these abnormalities are caught during evaluation of the patients’ movements such as off sets or dorsiflexion. There are many different aspects […]

Tearing of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)

Tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (ALC) is the most common athletic injury in field sports like soccer, rugby and football, as well as in basketball and a number of other sports that require rapid deceleration and sudden directional changes. Nearly 100,000 Americans suffer an ACL injury each year, the majority being female athletes. When […]

Hamstring Strain Rehabilitation

Considered fairly common among both amature and professional athletes, a hamstring strain involves some type of strain or injury to normal activities, can be greatly reduced. New York Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation addresses common sources of hamstring tendon strain to make adjustments while recovering such as wearing lighter shoes and modifying their exercise routine. Sympto promote effective healing. […]

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.
