THE PERFORMANCE MEDICINE INSTITUTE

FEATURING CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY USUALLY ONLY AVAILABLE TO PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES AND OLYMPIANS

 

The Performance Medicine Institute is designed to help athletes achieve their absolute personal best while minimizing training related injuries. From weekend warriors to elite athletes, every level of competitor can benefit from our services.  We offer a battery of performance tests and therapies that are traditionally only available in the research lab or to professional athletes and Olympians.  Our team of human performance experts,  including a physician, physical therapist, exercise physiologist, dietitian, massage therapist, clinical pharmacist, and personal trainers, will go out of their way to ensure you are reaching your optimal performance.

PERFORMANCE LAB

DEXA Body Composition Analysis

$75 per test or 5 pack for $250

DEXA scanning is the most accurate method to measure body composition.  Our DEXA scanner is equipped with the latest software and measures the composition of your body including muscle mass, fat percentage, and other body compositions.  It is so accurate it can even breakdown where exactly your body fat is located.  For example it can compare the amount of body fat on your left bicep versus your right bicep.  It can also measure your visceral adipose tissue which is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart attacks, and stroke.

V02 Max

$125 per test or 5 pack for $450

Your aerobic exercise capacity will be measured by placing you on a treadmill or stationary bike and measuring your maximum rate of oxygen consumption during incremental exercise. Your max consumption reflects your aerobic physical fitness and determines your endurance capacity during prolonged exercise.  Your exercise physiologist or personal trainer can use this data to help develop a personalized exercise program that will allow you to achieve peak results by working smarter and more efficiently.

Lactate Threshold

$125

Lactate Threshold is a measure of metabolic fitness. Lactate is an organic by-product of anaerobic metabolism, and its accumulation in the blood is used to evaluate the intensity that a runner can maintain for extended periods of time, usually thirty minutes or more. Lactate threshold (LT) and maximal steady state lactate levels (MSSLL) are indications of how well one's muscles are trained to do endurance-type work. Most people, except the most highly trained athletes, are limited by metabolic fitness rather than cardiovascular fitness. Highly trained endurance athletes become "centrally limited" meaning they can work at extreme heart rates w/out severe muscle fatigue. An untrained individual might reach LT at about 50-60% of their Max Heart Rate (MaxHR), whereas a well-trained runner won't reach LT until about 80-95% of their MaxHR.

NormaTec Compression Recovery

30 min - $25, 15 min - $15, Pick 2 (30 min each) - $45, All 3 (30 min each) - $65

Train Harder.  Recover Faster.  Helps you recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation.  It is like having your own personal, on-call, massage therapist. NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery—their systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. Their goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every athlete’s training, and we feel NormaTec systems are the best way to accomplish that. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. All of their systems use NormaTec's patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.  Their systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. When you use their systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands, or upper quad (depending on which attachment you are using). Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb. 

Resting Metabolic Rate

$75 per test or 5 pack for $250

Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is a calculation of the total calories your body burns over a 24-hour period while at rest. You'll breathe in and out of a machine which uses your pulmonary gases to measure your metabolic rate. ​ This provides extremely valuable information that your dietitian will use to develop a personalized nutrition plan to help you achieve your goals, whether they are weight loss, increased muscle mass, decreased body fat composition or sport specific diet plans.

Hormonal Profile

$ Cost Varies - billed by Labcorp

We can draw your blood and send if off to the laboratory to look at a plethora of different hormone levels including:

  • Male and Female Sex Hormones (Testosterone, Estradiol, Progesterone, LH, FSH, Prolactin, Sperm counts)

  • Growth Hormone Profile (GH, IGF-1)

  • Adrenal Hormone Profile (ACTH, Cortisol, DHEA-S)

  • Thyroid Hormone Panel (TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Thyroid Antibody levels)

  • Insulin Sensitivity Testing (Glucose, A1c, Insulin levels)

  • Bone Panel (Vitamin D, Calcium, Phosphorus, iPTH)

  • Kidney/Liver/Electrolytes  Panel (Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Bicarbonate, BUN, Creatinine, Alkaline Phosphatase, AST, ALT, Bilirubin, Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus levels)

  • Vitamin Levels (B12, B6, Folate, D)

Some tests may be covered by your health insurance.  Labs are sent to Labcorp who bills the patient or the patient's insurance for the testing

Steroid Joint Injection

$95

In addition to reducing pain, intra-articular steroid injections can help the affected joint heal faster by decreasing inflammation and swelling.  We can inject shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles and feet. 

IV Hydration

$75 per liter. Additional charge for add-ons

IV hydration can be very useful both before and after your big competition by helping you achieve peak performance and helping to speed recovery.  IV hydration therapies are also useful for increasing energy, reducing jet lag and quickly getting over the nastiest hangovers more quickly.  We use a Lactated Ringer's solution which contains sodium chloride, potassium chloride, calcium chloride and sodium lactate which produces a metabolic alkalinizing effect, combating the effects of lactic acidosis from extreme exertion.

Add-on include:

  • Toradol is a potent, non-sedating anti-inflammatory medication for aches and pains.

  • Zofran is a powerful, fast acting anti-emetic medication

  • Pepcid is an H2-blocker than can quickly reduce stomach acidity

  • Benadryl is a powerful H1-blocker that is very useful in reducing allergy symptoms

  • Dexamethasone - is a powerful corticosteroid that can be very useful in treating a variety of clinical conditions including sciatica, asthma exacerbations, poison ivy, hives, and various allergic reactions.

Vitamin B12 Shots

$25 for 1,000 mcg

Vitamin B12 injections have the ability to boost energy and increase metabolic rate while helping to regulate sleep, mood & appetite.

Parenteral Medications

$25 for first, $15 for each additional

Can be injected directly into the muscle or added to an IV infusion for an even more immediate affect

  • Toradol is a potent, non-sedating anti-inflammatory medication for aches and pains.

  • Zofran is a powerful, fast acting anti-emetic medication

  • Pepcid is an H2-blocker than can quickly reduce stomach acidity

  • Benadryl is a powerful H1-blocker that is very useful in reducing allergy symptoms

  • Dexamethasone - is a powerful corticosteroid that can be very useful in treating a variety of clinical conditions including sciatica, asthma exacerbations, poison ivy, hives, and various allergic reactions.

Other

DEXA Bone Density - $75 - measures the bone density in your hip and spine via DEXA scanner to detect metabolic bone disorders including osteopenia and osteoporosis.

Spirometry - $50 -  measures how much air you can hold and how quickly you can move air in and out of your lungs. It is a great screening test for diseases such as asthma, COPD, and pulmonary fibrosis.

Resting EKG - $50 -  screening test for heart arrhythmias, conduction defects, and signs of prior heart attacks.

Urinalysis - $25 -  can be used to see if an athlete is in a ketotic state during intense dieting.  It can also be used to screen for drugs of abuse as well as screening for urinary tract infections or other kidney disorders
