Main clinical approaches

  1. Sonography testing is used to diagnose the structural state of soft tissues and joints during musculoskeletal system disorders
    Main ultrasonography techniques:

    • Ultrasonography of shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle joints, including traumatic rotator cuff injuries, early diagnosis of infant hips dysplasia, Ultrasonography of abdominal cavity organs, pelvic organs,
    • Dopplerography of upper and lower extremity and neck blood vessels.
  2. Electroneuromyography (ENMG) and needle EMG methods are used to diagnose the functional state of the peripheral nervous system and the segmental apparatus of the spinal cord.
    Main electromyography techniques:

    • Stimulation ENMG is the evaluation of motor and sensory nerve fibers conduction velocity indices, as well as skeletal muscle strength. Indications for the examination: nerve neuropathies, including posttraumatic ones, tunnel syndromes, mononeuropathies, polyneuropathies, radiculopathies, polyradiculopathies, plexitis. Surface sticky electrods are used for ENMG examination.
    • Needle EMG is used in motoneuron diseases (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), spinal amyotrophy), plexus traumatic injuries, tunnel syndromes, muscle diseases (myopathy, polymyositis); diseases related to membrane excitability dysfunction (myotonia, myotonic syndromes), neuro-muscular transmission (diagnosis of myasthenia and myasthenic syndromes). Sterile disposable needles are used for EMG examination.
    • Surface EMG is used in dynamic observation of the functional state of muscles at the stages of conservative and surgical treatment of the musculoskeletal system, including clubfoot, dysplasia of the hip joints, coxarthrosis, gonarthrosis
    • Recording of surface and needle spontaneous activity
    • Intraoperative neuromonitoring is used in surgical spine fusion (including scoliosis) to prevent the neurology complications
  3. Electrocardiography including heat rate variability
  4. Reovasography of limbs circulation is used to diagnosis blood circulation distortion as Raynaud’s disease

Main scientific research approaches

  • A study of the pathogenesis of the diagnosis and treatment of back pain
  • A study of the pathogenesis and conservative treatment of the aseptic necrosis of the femoral head
  • A development of the complex methods for diagnosing the causes of shoulder pain patch syndrome
  • A study of the pathogenesis of juvenile osteochondropatic kyphosis
