Medical Evaluations Q&A

What are medical evaluations?

Medical evaluations include a comprehensive assessment in which Dr. Jackson assesses your overall health and looks for signs of injuries, diseases, or other medical problems.

What should I expect during medical evaluations?

During medical evaluations, Dr. Jackson weighs you, evaluates your body mass index (BMI), and checks your vital signs (blood pressure, pulse, etc.). He also completes a comprehensive physical exam to look for signs of diseases, illnesses, or injuries.

Dr. Jackson asks you questions about your lifestyle, medications, medical history, and symptoms during the medical review portion of your evaluation. 

He may order a musculoskeletal ultrasound, X-rays, or other imaging procedures, as well as blood tests or other diagnostic testing, as needed.

He also addresses concerns or questions you may have about your health before customizing your treatment plan.

What happens after medical evaluations?

Depending on your diagnosis and personalized needs, Dr. Jackson may recommend one or more of the following treatments for musculoskeletal problems:

  • Home remedies
  • Autologous orthobiologics 
  • Physical therapy
  • Sports medicine
  • Ultrasound-guided injections
  • Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)
  • TenJet® 

Home remedies that reduce pain include resting the injured part of your body, using ice or heat packs, trying compression, or wearing a brace, splint, or cast.

Ultrasound-guided injections help reduce swelling and pain associated with a disease or injury. ESWT uses painless acoustic shockwave energy to stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal, and TenJet technology uses high-velocity saline and a needle-like device to eliminate diseased tissues and promote natural healing.

Autologous orthobiologics consist of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or other cells sourced from your body that stimulate tissue healing and new cell growth without invasive treatments.
