Thyroid Evaluation At Dr. Mynster
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that hugs the windpipe just above the collarbone. As part of the endocrine system, the thyroid produces two hormones that regulate metabolism. Thyroid issues disrupt its function and can bring about several health complications. At Dr. Mynster in Hermitage, our chiropractor offers evaluations, testing, and treatment for thyroid issues.
Symptoms of Thyroid Problems
The thyroid is a vital gland that regulates most body functions. It also plays a major role in growth, development, and metabolism in the body. When a person is experiencing hormonal imbalances in the thyroid, the gland will not produce enough hormones for the thyroid to function (hypothyroidism) or will make too many hormones (hyperthyroidism). Thus, causing a range of symptoms, including:
- Air loss
- Puffy face
- Swollen hands
- Hair loss
- Swollen feet
- Achy joints
- Weight gain
- Slower heart rate
If you feel lumps in your throat accompanied by the difficulty of swallowing, then see our doctor in Hermitage immediately.
Thyroid Evaluation and Thyroflex
At Dr. Mynster, our chiropractor will do a complete evaluation of your health history and body to determine your thyroid issues. Dr. Mynster may use the Thryoflex test to help diagnose the problem as well. Thyroflex is a non-invasive and pain-free procedure where our doctor tests your physiological functions. Standard blood tests will only measure TSH, T3, and T4 levels. With Thyroflex, we can measure the nerve conduction velocity through tendon reflex. From there, we can determine the best course of treatment for your needs.
