Performance Lab

Our Sports Performance Enhancement Lab features a variety of specialized tools, equipment and methods that let us conduct a thorough biomechanical analysis of your unique movement patterns. We have collected the most advanced research grade technology in the world and integrated it in our Manhattan clinic, something you won’t find at any other private clinic in NYC.

The sports medicine specialists at NYDNRehab have extensive training and experience in human movement analysis. We conduct a full battery of tests, analyze quantitative data, identify and prioritize problems, and provide corrective strategies to resolve them.

    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.
