Computerized Nerve Scans

 

 

The MyoVision system was designed by NASA researcher David Marcarian, MA and has been the patient education tool of choice at colleges and healthcare offices around the world for over 20 years.

 
The MyoVision Scan takes 90 seconds and is completely safe, painless and non-invasive. The MyoVision sEMG ScanVisions read the voltage that the muscles in your spine naturally emit. These readings look at the level of voltage and the patterns of directionality, which allows your healthcare professional to determine if your spine and nervous system are functioning optimally. 
 

What Our State-of-the-Art Technology Does For You

The Myovision

  • Detects areas of nerve disturbance
  • Documents and monitors your results
  • Helps us deliver the appropriate chiropractic care

4 important factors to consider before the tests are administered:

Do the Myovision tests hurt?
Absolutely not. The tests do not utilize any needles, electrical shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important information from your Central Nervous System

 

Why does the chiropractor administer these tests?
Our purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the nerve system which cannot be seen on X-ray. Abnormal nerve system function causes abnormal muscle function then causing abnormal spinal function. The standard tests will measure 1) SEMG – the amount of electrical current in the muscles, 2) Thermography – skin temperature along the spine.

 

Why is it important to monitor the results?
Your chiropractor wants the best results for practice members like yourself. He/she can easily monitor your changes through periodic progressive assessments. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure (the weight of a dime!) can disturb the communication of the Nervous System whether or not symptoms are present. How can the chiropractor measure the results after removing pressure? By using the advanced technology of the Myovision. This is vitally necessary to monitor how the Nervous System is working. Improved nerve system function is the key to improving your health and well-being.

How will this test benefit me?
For years, a major concern of the public has been, Why do I have to keep coming back when I’m pain-free? or How do I know if I’m getting the proper amount of adjustments? Now you are able to actually see the changes, and it will be easier to understand the amount and type of care you are receiving. Because of this technology, your chiropractor can provide a “tailor-made” program to meet your specific health needs.

Surface Electromyography (SEMG Scan)
Your muscles are controlled by your nerves. The SEMG will measure the amount of electrical current going to the muscles tested. The SEMG is to the muscles what the EKG is to the heart. The EMG pinpoints areas of abnormal electrical conductivity within the muscle tested. Abnormal electrical activity will be indicated by colors and/or abnormal patterns. The abnormal activity is an objective sign of the subluxation process.

Temperature Differences (Thermal Scan)
The thermal scan measures the loss of autonomic nerve system function and guides us, nerve by nerve and organ by organ in the development of the disease process before it becomes symptomatic.

The blood vessels are controlled by the same part of the Central Nervous System that runs your organs and glands, known as the Autonomic nerve system. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and the blood vessels under the skin work as the body’s thermostat. (They expand to release heat and contract to retain heat controlling the body’s temperature.)

If your body temperature is 98.6 degrees, then the left and right sides of your spine should be also the same temperature. When the communication between the Nerve System and the blood vessels is disturbed, it causes the body’s thermostat to malfunction producing an imbalanced temperature reading along the spine.
