image17651.jpgWhat is the Myovision?image14711.jpg

The Myovision is a computerized Spinal Examination. It detects and displays temperature differences and muscle imbalances, from misaligned spinal bones. Since doctors of chiropractic work on your spine, which is located in the back, it is difficult for patients to see what the doctor finds.  This is what makes the Myovision so valuable.  You can actually see your spinal problems and how it affects your entire body.  More importantly, as if feeling great and having your body working better wasn't enough, the Myovision allows us to monitor your improvements as well. 

1. Thermography Glideimage14831.jpg

The Thermography scan detects the activity of the autonomic nervous system.  It measures the temperature on one side of the spine and compares it to the other side of the spine.  Since blood flow is controlled by our nervous system, unequal temperature indicates that there is a problem with the nervous system at that particular level.

The surface EMG (Electromyography) is a device which measures the amount of electrical activity your muscles release when they are contracting, or under tension.  It is similar in function to an EKG which measures heart muscle activity.  Under normal conditions our spinal muscles should be balanced and free from tension.  However, when someone is suffering from spinal misalignments, muscles become unbalanced and tense. This can lead to early joint degeneration and disturb our overall well being.  The surface EMG, is safe for infants, children, expecting moms, and patients with pacemakers. 

Laying the foundation

Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
