MyoVision is a state-of-the-art EMG system that measures the electrical signals of your spine. Using this system, Dr. Tinker is able to identify parts of the spine that have normal or abnormal energy levels. The following picture shows an "ideal" energy level (left) next to someone with some severe subluxations that are disrupting the energy flow. (right)
Why do chiropractors use computerized spinal examinations?
Our modern chiropractic office is committed to using the highest quality research and clinical grade instrumentation available for the purpose of detecting and correcting the Vertebral Subluxation.
How does this relate to chiropractic?
Vertebral Subluxation reduces the body's ability to maintain optimal health. When Vertebral Subluxations are present, the nervous system is negatively affected resulting in increases or decreases in muscle activity. The sEMG shows the muscular component of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Our job is to detect and correct these Vertebral Subluxations by a simple and effective procedure called an "adjustment".
What does sEMG stand for?
sEMG stands for Surface Electromyography. sEMG is a device which measure the amount of electrical activity your muscles release when the are contracting, more commonly know as muscle tension. It is similar in function to an EKG which measures heart muscle activity.
MyoVision scans are safe for all ages.
Is It Painful?
Not at all. It is totally non-invasive and does not cause pain or irritation. This make it totally safe for infants, children, pregnant women or seniors. It simply requires the placement of small probes against the skin, with the test taking less than a few minutes.
