Good PT / Sports Doctor in Chiang Rai?

Recommended Posts

As the title says. I'm a runner and I'm worried I have a stress fracture. Any good docs in town?

I'd most likely need an actual bone scan. Which I assume any orthopedic clinic would be able to do. But looking particularly for one with sports experience in case they need to advise on any type of follow up rehab.

what is an actual bone scan?  are you a pro athelite?  don't think any special need for sports exp. for a stress fracture, really.

if you are serious, inquire at the testing clinic on phahoyotin just south of the new trimuph dealer and back entrrance to central, they may require a dr. referral though.

In case you are actually interested in reading about it -

  • X-rays. Stress fractures often aren't apparent on regular X-rays taken shortly after your pain begins. It can take several weeks — and sometimes longer than a month — for evidence of stress fractures to show on X-rays.
  • Bone scan. A few hours before a bone scan, you'll receive a small dose of radioactive material through an intravenous line. The radioactive substance accumulates most in areas where bones are being repaired — showing up on the scan image as a bright white spot. However, many types of bone problems look alike on bone scans, so the test isn't specific for stress fractures.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRI uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to produce detailed images of your internal structures. An MRI usually can visualize stress fractures within the first week of injury, and can visualize lower-grade stress injuries (stress reactions) before an x-ray shows changes. This type of test is also better able to distinguish between stress fractures and soft tissue injuries.

The pain just began this week, hence why I don't think an x-ray will be able to diagnose.

 

No I'm not pro, but I do compete and I do earn money from my running. Like I said - diagnosis can be done by almost anyone, but I'm looking for the athletic experience in case I need any referrals for rehab.
