What is the MyoVision Exam?
MyoVision utilizes technology similar to the EKG. Instead of measuring heart muscle patterns, we measure the muscular compensation of the spine. The MyoVision exam is an electronic form of palpation, providing an objective means of quantifying an important measure of spinal health. The MyoVision Scan is used to test for pain as a result of soft tissue injury from an auto accident or work injury. Sensors are placed on the body to measure both how far you can bend and your muscle guarding response.
Is it painful?
Not at all. It is non-invasive and does not cause pain or irritation. This makes it safe for children, pregnant women, and seniors. It simply requires the placement of small electrodes against the skin.
How does this relate to your health?
Just as a blood pressure cuff is used to track your cardiovascular health, the MyoVision is used to track your spinal health. The data helps determine the proper course of care and track your progress over time.
