X-rays are done in office, giving us the advantage of developing the films within minutes. Our X-ray software provides magnifying options to better determine patient injuries. An X-ray will show the bone structure better, but will not show you fascia composition, tearing, fat degeneration and muscle swelling. For these kind of injuries, we also have an ultrasound available in office. This is an important device used to diagnose as well as follow up on common sports injuries. Below (attached to this email) is a picture of Dr. Pearl’s heel when he was experiencing plantar fasciitis.
