Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is a well-accepted treatment and diagnostic tool
in the radiology and orthopedic community for the treatment and diagnosis of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injury. It is an exciting new way to look inside and even operate on the body with no incisions.
Neuromusculoskelatal (NMSK) Ultrasound is a diagnostic, sometimes - therapeutic technique utilized to evaluate pathology of muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. Orthopedic muscle ultrasound allows us to visualize these structures in a noninvasive manner to evaluate the possibility of pathology. This technique is not greatly different than radiographs, MRI scans and other radiology imaging techniques, although images are many times clearer and the pathology can be pinpointed by the doctor who is aiming the probe directly at the are that hurts.
Dynamic Neuromusculoskelatal Ultrasound is a new technique developed by Dr Fried to help patients with RSI and carpal tunnel as well as thoracic outlet injuries. using technology of NMSK ultrasound, dynamic NMSK ultrasound takes this to the next level. Dr Fried took his experience as a nerve specialist and nationally recognized expert in Repetitive Strain Injury, Carpal Tunnel and Thoracic Outlet nerve injury, combined with 20 years of experience looking at nerves in surgery and applied this to develop a new way to use the NMSK ultrasound technology.READ MORE ABOUT THIS
I have spent the past 25 years helping patients by surgery and our therapy program to heal from carpal tunnel, repetitive strain injury as well as from pain from nerve injuries. I have reattached entirely amputated arms, hands and fingers, moved and reconnected nerves in patients with severe pain from nerve injury and helped literally thousands of people return to normal lives after severe injuries to their bodies.
BUT early in my career I found that it was not usually the dramatic operation or the miracle medication that healed them…
I discovered that my patients healed optimally in a quieter, more passive and pain-free way than just through surgery - and in many cases actually avoided surgery. This healing process involved the patient using his or her own belief, much like prayer and the power of positive thinking, but turned inward!
Through approaching the pain with a different outlook-- being involved with a sense of control of their own healing, understanding that every human being is born with the same innate power to heal - given us as birthright, they healed. Further, through the help of our therapists they learned self-help techniques, such as massage, life activity modification and how to eat and exercise better; even how to move and sit differently. We custom made splints and supports, to rest their injured nerves, tendons and joints in exactly the right position for them to heal. Through these incremental and combined measures, I saw tremendous healing take place. ~ Dr. Scott Fried
His latest book, A Surgeon's Self Hypnosis Healing Solution – My Father's Secret, specifically details the use of self -healing relaxation techniques and includes a free audio of Dr Fried teaching you self - hypnosis.
Most splints bought in stores are not ideal for stabilizing your injuries and many do not fit well resulting in abrasions or improper or incomplete immobilization. Also for problems like Carpal Tunnel, they extend or bring the wrist up, which can be as damaging to the nerve as flexion positioning associated with the problem. Neutral custom positioning has allowed us to achieve cures in 50% of the patients who come to us with carpal tunnel problems with NO SURGERY. We also make custom semi-flexible splints of our own special design which allow you to do daily activities in comfort, and allow you protection without the side effects of rigid immobilization devices.
We offer the option of 1 day fly in evaluations and week long sessions for healing to help avoid surgery and address your personal concerns. Many of our patients come from a distance to explore non surgical options!
