Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

TIPS TO CHOOSING THE RIGHT MEDICAL EXAM GLOVES
Medical exam gloves are designed to protect your hands from exposure to bodily fluids and pathogens. Healthcare workers rely on them in order to protect themselves and their patients, but even the general population has benefited from wearing medical gloves, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Most Common Types of Treatment Gloves
Although available in both reusable and disposable styles, the most popular medical exam gloves are used once and disposed of upon removal. Most medical gloves are made from vinyl, latex, or nitrile and offered in a variety of sizes for both men and women as well as in multiple colors and in either powdered or powder-free form.
LATEX, VINYL, AND NITRILE EXAM GLOVES
Latex Exam Gloves
Therapeutic ultrasound therapy refers to the use of ultrasound energy on a particular part of your body that is causing you pain. The idea behind it is the wavelengths of energy are able to stimulate better circulation to your soft tissues. The improved circulation promotes blood flow and healing to injured areas that cause chronic pain. The circulation also lessens swelling. The wavelengths range from 800,000 Hz to 2,000,000 Hz, and they are applied to your skin with the use of a firm but smooth transducer.
Vinyl Exam Gloves
An ultrasound machine produces ultrasound waves by means of a piezoelectric transducer. The ultrasonic vibrations that are produced are then transmitted through soft tissue with the help of a conductive gel. This gel, also known as ultrasound gel, keeps air pockets from forming between the skin and the head of the transducer, helping the sound waves penetrate the skin evenly as the wand is moved around the treated area. Ultrasound procedures usually last between 5 to 10 minutes and the patient can feel a mild pulsating or slight warmth, but no discomfort should occur. Make sure you never use ultrasound machines or other electrotherapy devices over open wounds or near a pacemaker.
Nitrile Exam Gloves
People with chronic pain or an injury that is slow to heal should consider a portable ultrasound therapy machine for their home. For example, if you have tendonitis in your arm or shoulder, your doctor may prescribe physical therapy and stretch in order to strengthen your tissues. However, this will not necessarily help your pain. The ultrasound therapy machine could lessen your pain even as the physical therapy exercises prevent you from re-injuring your tendon. People who are unable to use medications for pain relief, people who do not respond to pain medications, or people who do not get enough relief from physical therapy and pain medications should also consider ultrasound therapy.
Small cuts or abrasions to your skin could allow pathogens to get inside your body. By wearing gloves, you minimize your exposure to germs contained in body fluids. Wearing gloves also prevent you from contaminating food or laboratory specimens. During influenza outbreaks, pandemics, or for those with compromised immune systems, wearing disposable exam gloves may also lower the risk of spreading or contracting bacterial and viral infections.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What types of gloves do hospitals use?
Medical staff and doctors use different disposable treatment gloves to protect their patients and themselves, particularly in unsanitary situations. Depending on the need, they use gloves with various thicknesses, protection levels, and materials. Latex gloves used to be the lone, standard hospital glove. But now, they share the medical glove market with gloves made of nitrile or vinyl. Also, some medical professionals choose powdered coated medical gloves to ease putting them on and taking them off. However, technical advances have allowed disposable glove manufacturers to develop easy slip-on and off gloves like the ASAP Nitrile Powder Free Exam Gloves or the All-Purpose Vinyl Gloves Powder-Free.
What gloves are best for medical procedures?
The best gloves for medical procedures are nitrile gloves. Since they consist of high-grade synthetic rubber, nitrile gloves make the best treatment gloves for medical procedures. They outperform other types of gloves in protecting wearers from viruses and resistance to chemical exposure. Plus, nitrile gloves are puncture resistant and highly durable. As a result, many medical professionals consider products like the ASAP Nitrile Gloves as the best option for performing surgeries, exams, and other vital medical procedures. Since surgery procedures can be high infection risk environments, surgeons choose medical-grade nitrile gloves for their toughness, puncture resistance, and shelf life. In addition, surgical and examination gloves undergo a sterilization process that lessens the threat of cross-contamination.
What are the differences between nitrile and latex gloves?
Nitrile and latex gloves are different in several critical ways. From a health standpoint, latex gloves can trigger allergic reactions like severe dermatitis, whereas nitrile gloves are allergy-free. Also, the non-biodegradable synthetic rubber in nitrile makes them strong and durable enough to protect against harsh chemicals and punctures. In comparison, natural rubber in latex finger cots and gloves is less protective and durable than the material in nitrile gloves. However, latex gloves provide a more comfortable fit, making them a better choice than nitrile for long-term use.
What is the difference between vinyl and nitrile gloves?
The basis of the difference between vinyl and nitrile gloves is their chemical makeup. A vinyl glove is a synthetic polymer product derived from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). As a result, products like Durasafe Synthetic Vinyl Medical Exam Gloves have less elasticity, mechanical resistance, and strength than nitrile. They are characteristically loose-fitting, less sensitive, and prone to breaking under slight pressure. As such, vinyl gloves work best for cleanup jobs involving water, oils, and fats. Although vinyl exam gloves are more cost-effective than nitrile gloves, they should never replace nitrile gloves for high-risk protection purposes.
What kind of disposable gloves are best?
The primary purpose of disposable gloves is to reliably protect the wearer from any potential infectious or hazardous materials and substances. So, the best disposable gloves must be long-lasting, hypoallergenic, puncture-resistant, chemical resistant, sensitive, and strong. Based on these criteria, nitrile gloves are the best because they excel in all these categories. Many medical professionals select nitrile gloves for sterile and non-sterile medical procedures without worrying about allergic reactions. In addition, nitrile gloves have long shelf lives in the disposable glove dispenser.
What do nitrile gloves protect against?
Since nitrile gloves are rugged and puncture-resistant, they protect well against chemicals, extreme heat, cuts, dirt, biohazards, and skin irritations. Also, nitrile gloves, exam table paper, and other PPE supplies combine to protect against transferrable diseases like COVID 19. However, nitrile gloves weaken from contact with disinfectants, cleansers, and sanitizers.
When should you not use nitrile gloves?
Most surgeons use nitrile gloves while performing surgical procedures. But all nitrile gloves are not eligible for surgical use. For safety during surgical procedures, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration test and grades medical gloves by the standard of acceptable quality limits (AQL). A glove with few defects has a low AQL score. As a result, medical-grade gloves must have an AQL score of 2.5 or below, ensuring protection against blood-borne pathogens, infections, and diseases. For your convenience, retailers of treatment supplies offer regular and medical-grade nitrile gloves.
