The world of wellness and health is very changing, especially as new technology emerges. That is why our clients health and safety are our #1 priority here at DASHA®. We are proud to honor Patient Safety Awareness Week, and spread awareness about patient safety to all our clients, and independent health care providers.

During this week, IHI (Institute of Healthcare Improvement) seeks to globally advance the importance of patient safety and while doing so inspire others to take action in improving the health care system for patients and the workforce.  

So why is patient safety so important to us here at DASHA®? Well, besides the obvious reasons, we believe that your health is the foundation to a well-balanced and well-lived life. That includes getting diagnosed correctly and taking immediate action in starting your wellness journey.

In order to do that, you must first be properly diagnosed to find the core of the issue. This is what sets DASHA® aside from other medical practices. DASHA® understands that most clients come in based on symptoms. However, as an integrative medical practice we believe in using a 360-degree approach to wellness and healthcare. So whether you come into DASHA® with a sports related injury or numbness and tingling we will try alternatives to assist with the individual’s care.

At DASHA® it is our pledge to all of you that we use the most cutting edge technology in order to accurately find the root of the problem you are facing, providing you with the most honest and accurate diagnosis, allowing us to then properly treat your current condition.

Our diagnostics tests help physicians determine the probability of disease for their patients.

EMG/NCV Test – Diagnostic test that has two components, the Nerve Conduction Test (NCV), and the needle examination, or Electromyogram (EMG) which checks the response of muscles to messages sent by the nerves. Patients that require this testing are ones that are experiencing neck or back radiating pain the arm or legs, muscle weakness, or involuntary twitching of muscles.  

Diagnostic Ultrasound – Ultrasound images are captured in real-time, which show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels. This noninvasive medical test helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions such as tendon tears, abnormalities of the muscles, bleeding or other fluid collections within the muscles, small benign and malignant soft tissue tumors.

EKG/ECHO – Electrocardiograms (EKG) and Echocardiograms (ECHO) are distinct and complementary diagnostic tests to diagnose and treat many health issues. During an EKG, small electrodes are attached to a patient’s arms, legs and chest to record the electrical activity in the heart. The test can detect heart rhythms that are either too fast or too slow, as well as arrhythmia and conditions like cardiomyopathy. An EKG machine graphs the electrical impulses of the heart to diagnose the presence of cardiovascular disease.
