Are you at risk for a heart attack? Our MD’s can answer this question.

Cholesterol values alone cannot predict whether or not a heart attack is in your future.

There are more causes to heart disease than high cholesterol. Lipoprotein testing is one useful solution that more confidently uncovers causes for heart disease.

Lipoprotein Test (LPT) Lipoproteins are molecules made of proteins and fat. They carry cholesterol and similar substances through the blood. High levels of lipoproteins can increase the risk of heart disease. The test is done to check your risk of atherosclerosis, stroke, and heart attack.

A blood test can be done to measure a specific type of lipoprotein called lipoprotein-a, or Lp(a). A high level of Lp(a) is considered a risk factor for heart disease. The example in the following link shows the common measurements of results for this test. Higher than normal values of Lp(a) are associated with a high risk for heart disease. View sample LPT test

Patients Reviews…

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.

This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
