What kind of diagnostic testing does BackFit do?

Here at BackFit Health + Spine, we focus on musculoskeletal conditions. We provide on-site digital x-rays and ultrasound imaging to help pinpoint the cause of soft and hard tissue conditions. These 2 diagnostic imaging procedures are used to correctly identify the underlying structural issue that is causing your symptoms.

This in-house service allows you to save time and money by not having to go to an x-ray or ultrasound clinic or hospital for imaging. And since our diagnostics are digital, results are provided almost immediately, leading to faster treatment and relief from pain.

We also provide various lab testing services.

What is a diagnostic ultrasound?

Diagnostic ultrasound, or diagnostic medical sonography, is a handheld imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves (or ultrasound waves) to produce images of inside your body’s internal structures. Ultrasound exams show your muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, internal organs, blood vessels, and more.

These images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions and diseases, such as sprains, strains, tears, and other soft tissue problems. It can also be used as a live viewing aid during certain treatments and procedures.

Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive, and does not use radiation.

What are digital x-rays?

As you probably know, traditional x-rays use photographic film. Digital radiography is similar but uses digital sensors instead of film. The machine set up at BackFit is similar to a traditional x-ray machine, but results are nearly instant.

Digital x-rays also use 80% less ionizing radiation and the digital images can be enhanced after processing, while traditional x-rays cannot be enhanced later.

Our doctors provide imaging for almost all of our patients. We want to check for fractures or breaks, disc issues, scoliosis, tumors, or other abnormalities before providing health care. This is especially important before providing chiropractic but sometimes also for physical therapy and our medical services.

If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, make sure to tell your doctor before you get an x-ray.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.
