What is the MyoVision Exam?
MyoVision utilizes technology similar to the EKG. Instead of measuring heart muscle patterns, we measure the muscular compensation about the spine. The MyoVision exam is an electronic form of palpation, providing an objective means of quantifying an important measure of spinal health. The exam takes only a couple of minutes.
Is it painful? Not at all. It is non-invasive and does not cause pain or irritation. This makes is safe for children, pregnant women, and seniors. It simply requires the placement of small electrodes against the skin.
Why is muscle activity important? Muscles compensate for pain and/or spinal subluxation by tensing up to brace and guard. The MyoVision objectively documents this pattern of muscular guarding, establishing need for care and tracking progress over time.
