We use a variety of neurological scans and x-rays to determine the cause of your pain or discomfort. We use these scans and x-rays to create an accurate picture of what’s going on in your spine, so we can treat it more effectively and efficiently.
Digital X-Rays: Digital X-Rays capture a picture of the structure of your spine. If needed, our doctors will take a digital x-ray to determine how the structure of your spine has impacted the function of your nervous system. **Note- We do not perform x-rays on expecting moms or children**
Surface Electromyography (sEMG): Sufrace Electromyography measures the amount of electrical activity in the muscles along your spine. Interruptions in the nervous system produce too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles. This scan lets us know how much “stress” that your body is under.
Thermal Scan: This measures temperature along your spine. When there are disturbances to your nervous system, there are temperature differences from side to side due to inflammation and changes in blood flow. This scan detects the condition of your autonomic nervous system that controls your cells, tissues, muscles, and organs. The thermal scan is non-invasive, does not use any radiation, and is completely safe for pregnant/nursing moms, kids, and babies.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV): HRV is quickly becoming the gold standard for measuring cardiovascular health. This technology is a global measure of how stressed the brain and nervous system are. It indicates the amount of autonomic reserve and resiliency the nervous system contains to deal with the abundant amount of stressors in today’s society.
