Advanced Nonsurgical Pain Treatment Methods

Pain management experts at HealthQuest utilize innovative treatment methods to relieve patients’ pain.

  • Spinal decompression is an example of a unique treatment procedure perfected by the chiropractors at HealthQuest. The treatment is administered using a spinal decompression machine. It is effective and also safe and approved by the FDA. The technique employs mechanical traction to alleviate pressure from the nerves. Spinal decompression has benefited patients suffering from spinal disc injuries. In such cases, it serves as an alternative for surgery. Spinal decompression is also an effective option for neck pain.
  • Joint injections are another effective pain treatment option for back and spinal pain. At HealthQuest, epidural and facet injections are administered with the help of ultrasound technology. The ultrasound provides doctors with a clear picture of the region requiring treatment, so that they can precisely direct the needles to the affected area.
  • Other areas that HealthQuest specializes in are neurology, orthopedics, physical therapy, and manual manipulation. The facility is involved with patients in the recovery stage from accidents or surgery. Orthopedic care is provided for the spine, hip, ankles, knees, elbows and shoulders.

Efficient Diagnostics

The key to effective and safe treatment is, of course, effective diagnostics. It all begins with the physical examination of the patient at the initial consultation. Diagnostic services such as MRIs and X-ray are available on site, which makes things much more easier and convenient for patients who need deeper diagnostic testing.

The more advanced the diagnostic technology, the better it is for the diagnostic efficiency, safety and user comfort of the procedure. The MRI tech at HealthQuest is advanced, and among the most non-invasive. Providing detailed images of the soft tissues of the body, it provides accurate scan results of various diseases and conditions. These high resolution images are the result of onboard computers, strong magnets and radio waves. An open MRI is also on offer for patients wanting a less intimidating experience. The facility at HealthQuest is accredited by the American College of Radiology.

Beyond pain management, HealthQuest also serves the community by offering weight loss and smoking cessation programs using safe and effective modalities.
