Technologies for Diagnostics
and Assessment

Accurate diagnosis and assessment are foundational to effective and lasting treatment. Our advanced technologies take the guesswork out of diagnosis, giving us clear images and precise measurements that form a baseline for your recovery plan.

Misdiagnosis based on symptoms alone can lead to inappropriate treatment that prolongs your pain and dysfunction, costing you time and money without yielding results. The cutting-edge diagnostic tools at NYDNRehab are rarely found in run-of-the-mill clinics. We offer our patients one-of-a-kind personalized care that you won’t find elsewhere.

High Resolution Diagnostic Ultrasonography

High Resolution Diagnostic Ultrasonography

A broad range of musculoskeletal conditions often share similar or even identical symptoms. Without the ability to visualize the affected structures, diagnosis becomes a guessing game. Imaging via Xray and MRI can help, but they only provide localized images of the affected area, with a limited field of vision.

The clinic at NYDNRehab features the highest resolution research-grade ultrasound equipment currently available. Using this advanced technology, our skilled clinicians are able to view the affected tissues and structures in real time, with the patient in motion and providing valuable feedback.

Using a hand-held transducer, we are able to visualize nerves along their entire path, detect deep tissue trigger points, and zero in on structural issues that may be the root cause of pain and dysfunction. In addition, this technology enables us to test soft tissue elasticity, and to image microscopic blood vessels to confirm that healing is taking place.

3D Gait Analysis Technologies

Our cutting-edge gait analysis lab equips us with the tools to evaluate walking and running gait in all three planes of motion, using precise measurements for joint kinematics, ground reaction forces, muscle firing patterns, weight distribution and more.

Unlike run-of-the-mill gait analysis that relies on subjective observational assessment, our technology-backed approach gives us quantitative data that we then use to coach and retrain your gait for maximal efficiency with minimal injury risk.

3D Motion Analysis

3D Motion Analysis

Athletes, ballet dancers, fitness instructors and anyone whose daily activities include skills-specific motion can benefit from a biomechanical analysis that measures performance efficiency. Regularly performing repetitive movements with suboptimal execution can lead to acute and chronic injuries that can be career-ending and debilitating.

Our 3D motion analysis technologies enable us to precisely measure force loads, joint angles, center of mass, muscle firing patterns and more. We use your collected data to establish a baseline, then provide feedback retraining to fine-tune your movement patterns and perfect your skills. 3D motion analysis helps you optimize your performance and prolong your career while dramatically reducing your risk of injury.

AI-Driven Assessment Tools

Artificial intelligence is gaining traction as an invaluable tool for evaluating patient strength, power and performance, and providing feedback to help restore the brain-body connection, post-injury. AI holds amazing promise for rehabilitative medicine, and NYDNRehab is among the first clinics in the USA to embrace it.

Regenerative Technologies

The human body is capable of healing itself, but it sometimes needs a nudge to accelerate the healing process. Regenerative technologies tap into your body’s own innate healing mechanisms to stimulate and speed up healing. Our non-invasive outpatient therapies expedite recovery with minimal discomfort for the patient.

Focused Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

Focused ESWT is used as a regenerative treatment for damaged tendon, muscle and bone tissue. This technology produces high frequency sound waves to stimulate the body’s own reparative mechanisms. It is especially effective for chronic degenerative tendon disorders and myofascial pain syndrome.


Extracorporeal Magnetic Transduction Therapy (EMTT)

EMTT is a fairly new technology that transmits high energy magnetic pulses to targeted tissues. The magnetic waves synchronize with the body’s own magnetic fields, causing a disturbance that triggers a regenerative response. EMTT waves can penetrate deep tissues up to 18 cm beneath the skin’s surface, to target difficult-to-reach tendons, muscles, bones and nerves.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)

EPAT

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), also known as defocused shock wave therapy, uses acoustic pressure waves to enhance blood circulation to targeted tissues. This speeds up the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissues and stimulates cellular metabolism, to accelerate the healing process.


HEIT

High energy inductive therapy uses electromagnetic fields to penetrate cells, tissues, organs and bones, to reactivate the electrochemical function of cells and cell membranes. HEIT generates a magnetic field 600 times stronger than the field of a normal magnet, to stimulate healing of nerves, muscles and blood vessels.

INDIBA CT9 Radiofrequency Device

INDIBA CT9 Radiofrequency Device

Our INDIBA Tecar therapy machine converts electrical current into a stable radio frequency current of 448 kHz, designed to increase and stabilize the exchange of ions in damaged cells, evoking a regenerative response that accelerates healing. INDIBA can be used to successfully treat joint and muscle disorders, low-back pain, sports injuries, surgical incisions and various pain syndromes. Another therapeutic effect of INDIBA is extreme and prolonged cellular hyperthermia. Due to this effect, INDIBA therapy combined with manual therapy and soft tissue tissue manipulation enables instantaneous release to occur, significantly shortening the number and duration of physical therapy sessions. What is normally accomplished in two months of physical therapy can be accomplished in 3-4 sessions with INDIBA.


Ultrasound Guided Dry Needling

When you push your body to its limits, your soft tissues often develop trigger points, tiny knots of muscle fibers that fail to relax, causing pain and dysfunction. When guided by ultrasound, dry needling is a quick and effective way to target deep tissue trigger points, evoking a twitch response that causes micro muscle spasms to immediate release.

Technologies for Rehabilitation
and Retraining

Getting back on track after an injury can be grueling, especially if you are an athlete who needs to return to your team or event in the shortest time possible. NYDNRehab is equipped with the most advanced technologies available to speed healing, restore strength and range of motion, rehabilitate neuropathways, and optimize skills execution, so you can return to play with confidence.

Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFRT)

Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFRT)

Rebuilding muscle strength while joints and connective tissues are still healing is a challenge for athletes who need to return to sport in the shortest time possible. BFRT enables you to increase muscle size and strength at much lower training volumes, to reduce stress on still-healing structures while rapidly restoring muscle performance.
