On Site Services
Patients visiting D1 Sports Medicine will experience the significant convenience of a rapid digital X-ray machine. No longer do patients have extended waiting periods to obtain images of a bum knee or shoulder. Since this modern technology does not require chemical developers, patients are whisked quickly in and out. Likewise, wait times to see the doctor are decreased as a result.
Human Performance Laboratory
This is a cutting edge concept in sports medicine which is provides performance athletes as well as individuals simply trying to achieve a greater degree of personal wellness and fitness, with precise metrics to gauge their progress. Among the services provided are a comprehensive baseline analysis of exercise capacity and targets as well as body morphology measurements.
1. Bod Pod
Utilizing the Bod Pod, Dr. Connor and his staff can provide patients with accurate body morphology measurements which rival the traditional gold standard of water displacement techniques. Recommendations are then made to the athlete and/or patient regarding a regimine to achieve a specific target body fat percentage.
2. Innervue Scope
Also in the Human Performance Laboratory are means for diagnosis and treatment of injuries. In addition to traditional orthopedic means of bracing and casting, Dr. Connor and his staff can provide fiber-optic, minimally invasive, in-office arthroscopy for videographic diagnosis.
3. PRP Machine
An additional, cutting-edge technique provided on site is that of platelet-rich plasma injection. Primarily utilized for chronic, recalcitrant tendonitis or arthritis, this technique involves a small blood draw and a centrifuge which then spins the patient’s own blood to condense the healing factors into a small amount of plasma. This enriched blood component is then injected back into the site of injury, inspiring the body to heal the tissue using the patient’s own naturally occurring healing potential.
