The Chiropractic Consultation and Examination process
A full health history (past and present), as well as orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic testing, which is relative to your problem. We will also undertake a Muscle and Thermal Scan. This will give the Chiropractor vital information about the function of your spine, joints and nervous system.
The Muscle scan involves a Static Electromyography (sEMG)
This technology reads electrical activity in order to measure paraspinal tension, similar to the use of electromyography in ECG/heart rate measurement machines. The electric current pattern is a critical component in how your body functions. The muscles on either side of your spine should be balanced: if they are not working equally well, the body is forced to compensate, which takes energy.
The INSiGHT neuroTHERMAL™ Scanner is a rolling segmental thermal scanner that uses infrared sensors to take temperature readings. The neuroTHERMAL Scanner measures paraspinal temperature differential. A significant difference in the temperature on each side of the spine could indicate a lack of autonomic responsiveness, an important indicator that something could be wrong with one or more organs.
