In Office Testing


Aging is no longer limited to our chornological age.   The chronological and the biological age of individuals can differ remarkably, and there are so many reliable biomarkers that can monitor the consequences of aging.  Now we have wearables, genetic testing and many more options for monitoring and improving our health as we age.   Many people are already taking advantage of the biomarkers with wearables, monitoring heart rate, fitness markers and even EKG's.  
Although there is not a single marker of agin, multiple markers may complement each other thereby their ability to determine present and future health.  The following is a list of tests and assessments are available, but are not limited to:

Postural analysis 
The ill effects of poor posture are not limited to the musculoskeletal system.  Poor posture contributes to neck, shoulder, low back and lower extremity conditions, making up a significant amount of the conditions presented for treatment every day.  Poor posture also contributes to headaches, poor sleep, digestive issues, decreased muscle length and strength, not to mention the unhealthy pressure put on our heart and lungs. With a simple postural exam and subsequent recommendations for postural corrections, not only is prevention of bone, joint and surrounding tissue deterioration possible, but also improved organ function.  


Grip strength
There are many studies showing that grip strength can be a indicator of longevity.  Poor grip strength is associated with a higher risk of premature all cause mortality, as well as decline with cognition, bone and muscle tissue, to name a few.  This is a non-invasive test that takes just seconds.  

Waist to hip ratio
A high waist to hip ratio is a marker for cardiovascular disease.  This is a measurement than can differ due to region of birth.
Ankle circumference.....


Strength and balance tests

Some examples of strength tests:  Sit to stand, One legged sit to stand, sit on floor to stand
Some examples of balance tests: Romberg, Berg Balance Test


Neurologic tests

Testing reflex, sensory, motor, vibration sense Vibratory perception in extrem classsical index of perifpher nervous decline with aging


Smell test
Smell testing - or testing for olfactory dysfunction is an early biomarker for brain aging - This test is a simple non invasive test

Taste test
In this test, the deterimination of whether you are a "bitter" taster or not is the goal.  Those who are "bitter" tasters are more likely eat certain vegetables than those who are not.

Mouth tongue, skin, hair and nails
A simple check of these can offer insight into many conditions, including vitamin and protein deficiencies, sleep apnea, hypothyroidism, etc.

Nitric Oxide
Nitric oxide has many functions in the body to include keeping blood vessels from becoming stiff and lowers blood pressure, supporting the Mitochondria which produces energy in the body, thereby boosting exercise performance, mediates some of estrogens actions in the brain and promotes immune health.  A simple test strip placed on the tongue can determine your levels.


Heart attack test

Cognition test
Mini Cog test, Montreal Cognitive Assessment, Mini-Mental State Exam
Environmental screening, Stress,               questionnaires

Information from wearables to include HRV, oxygen, resting heart rate, etc.
