Performance Lab

Performance Enhancement Lab is a collection of specialized tools and methods to perform legitimate biomechanical analysis of your unique movement. At NYDNRehab we have collected and integrated the most unique research grade technology unavailable anywhere else in NY.Our clinicians have extensive training and experience unlike any others to conduct tests, evaluate data, identify and prioritize problems, and provide corrective strategies.It is especially helpful in cases regarding; walking/running, athletic movement, cycling, multiple different sports,prescription rational for custom orthotics, identifying loading patterns for joint health, repetitive stress injuries and more…

Labs are great methods for studying any movement or posture related issue but are excellent for:

  • Running Analysis
  • Cycling Analysis and Bike Fitting
  • Athletic Movement Analysis
  • Injury prevention and Return-To-Sport Screening

The range of our testing includes:

3D running analysis
KINEO Intelligent Load muscle force assessment
Force plate loading assessment
Electromyography
3D Golf swing assessment
3D Bike fit
3D sports shoulder assessment
Sonoelastography
Return to sports analysis
Motion capture and video biofeedback
C.A.R.E.N. Hip knee and ankle stability assessment
Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasonography
RUSI
Neuro-motor training with DDROBOTECH

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.
