Treatments and Diagnostics

X-ray Services

Houston’s Progressive Medicine Associates offers x-rays to help us diagnose urgent and non-urgent conditions. Are you afraid that you fractured? Allow us to help you find out. At Progressive Medicine Associates, we use the latest in digital radiographic technology to produce high quality X-rays efficiently and quickly. Clinicians and patients can see images immediately while they are still in the office, often times negating the need for another time-consuming follow-up visit. Our digital X-ray machine exposes the patient to less radiation as well as the unpleasant odors associated with conventional X-ray processors. Copies of the X-rays can be quickly and easily made to take home, show to other health care providers, insurance companies, or attorneys, as needed.

On-Site Laboratory

We have an on-site laboratory to draw your blood and perform many rapid tests. Our lab prices are very affordable. Contact us for any specific labs.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections are small injections into a painful muscle to help alleviate the pain that originates from the muscle. Usually used after whiplash injuries, these injections can help speed up the recovery process. We can also help with painful joints by injecting them with corticosteroids to decrease the swelling and pain. When rehabilitation exercises and oral medications are not enough to stop the pain, Progressive Medicine Associates uses a highly specialized technique called Trigger Point Injections when indicated. These injections can only be done by a highly trained and qualified medical clinician with specialized knowledge of the musculo-skeletal system. This form of therapy is highly recommended for difficult cases, and is not appropriate for everyone.

Rehabilitation

Traumatic injuries caused by motor vehicle collision are very common, especially in Houston, Texas. Even slow moving car accidents can cause significant injury. At Progressive Medicine Associates, we make sure that our patients receive the highest quality of care from our team of experienced and highly qualified health care professionals. We use proven and tested rehabilitation methods to maximize our patients’ improvement and minimize pain, suffering, and permanent debilitation. We make sure that our patients also have minimal stress and hassle with the greedy and manipulative insurance companies by billing the insurance company rather than the patient. A typical rehabilitation session may last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes depending on the severity of the injuries and what therapies are needed to be performed. Our rehabilitation protocols focus on methods and techniques that are scientifically proven and evidence based. Some of the therapies we use include: chiropractic adjustments of the spine and extremities, intersegmental traction, thermotherapy, ultrasound, interferential stimulation, electrical muscle stimulation, therapeutic exercises, neuromuscular reeducation, manual therapy, and disc decompression.

Nerve Conduction Studies / EMG

Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies are done to measure the speed of an electrical signal down a nerve.  These are often done in the arms or legs to determine if there is any damage to the nerve due to an accident.  Along with NCV studies, and electromyogram (EMG) is usually performed.  This tests the muscles at the end of the nerves to see if the nerve damage has affected the muscle as well.  These are considered the most accurate and definitive tests for nerve and muscle damage and are often performed right after or in combination with an MRI to help pinpoint problems.

At Progressive Medicine Associates, we offer convenient in-clinic NCV/EMG studies to get the results fast so we can alter or continue your treatment based on the most accurate information.
