At Sound Sports & Family Chiropractic, we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology that scans your spine and delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension to your nervous system. Two different technologies give us (and you) an objective assessment:
Surface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Subluxations disturb the function of the nervous system. This can produce too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles. We use this highly-accurate, non-invasive scan to document your progress and chart your improvement. It's more accurate than how you feel.
As you'd expect, this measures temperature. When there are disturbances to your nervous system along the spine, there are often temperature differences from side to side. This is due to inflammation and changes in blood flow. Our thermal scan is non-invasive, gentle and reveals the condition of your autonomic nervous system controlling your organs, glands and circulatory system.
What to Expect
After gowning, we'll have you sit still for a moment or two. Then, starting at the base of your skull, we'll run two probes down your back. Think of these as miniature radio antennas listening for a distant station. That's it. The computer does the rest!
At your report of findings, you'll get to see the computerized printout and learn what it means. We will explain in detail what the scan represents and how it will help us in getting you well. Because your care is based on the condition of your nervous system, not how you feel, this technology is the focal point of our practice.
