Ultrasound diagnostics

Ultrasounds allow our doctors to examine your joints, tendons, and muscles to diagnose injuries or tears. Ultrasound is a quick way to diagnose injuries without the risk of radiation exposure that comes with other imaging solutions.

X-Ray equipment

This common imaging service is used to diagnose broken bones and other joint problems. You can learn more about our imaging services here.
