Grand Chute – Prevea Health is pleased to offer athletes and active individuals new imaging technology designed to help enhance performance and recover from lingering injuries more quickly. This summer, Prevea began utilizing the Springbok Analysis MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) at the Prevea Grand Chute Health Center, located at 3750 Investors Court in Grand Chute.
The Springbok Analysis MRI creates personalized 3D muscular images of patients’ lower bodies and helps to identify and measure the size of every individual muscle from the waist down. The cutting-edge technology is designed to pinpoint deficient muscle imbalances that may present a risk to a patient’s overall health or physical performance.
Mike LaMere, Prevea athletic trainer, says the new MRI technology can provide information, utilized by Prevea physical therapists and licensed athletic trainers, to better tailor exercises for their patients. Once the images are created a Prevea licensed athletic trainer will have a consultation with patients to create a treatment plan focused on reducing the risk of injury, recovering from injuries faster or optimizing a patient’s performance for a specific sport or lifestyle.
“This new technology produces 3D images of the entire lower body allowing our team to identify which muscle groups need more attention in training or rehab,” said LaMere. “By looking at the progress in one leg or muscle group, compared to the other side of a patient’s body, our performance team can design a workout that is tailored to our patient’s goals.”
