utilizes technology similar to the EKG. Instead of measuring
heart muscle patters, 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
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.
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.
indicate level of tension, with green, pink, red and yellow
corresponding with average, moderately high, high and very low
readings respectively. Percent difference displayed is the
difference between left and right sides at the level measured,
with arrows pointing the direction of imbalance. Both very high
(red) and very low (yellow) readings are significant. High
readings (red) are typically seen in the acute phase of spinal
subluxation or injury, while very low readings (yellow) are
commonly seen when muscles are in a chronic state of fatigue.
as 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
Electrophysiological (EP) Stress Score is calculated by adding
up all muscle activity readings for both left and right sides at
all levels of the spine. This sum of all muscle activity about
the spine provides a baseline measurement for which all subsequent
readings are compared. This allows us to track your progress
over time with a simple single number. This number means very
little on its own. The first reading is used to create a
baseline. All subsequent readings are compared with the baseline
for the purpose of tracking progress.
Stress Score readings on a first exam are associated with the
acute state of subluxation and/or spinal health. Readings
typically will drop after 4-6 weeks of care. Low EP Stress Score
readings on a first exam are associated with a chronic problem,
with muscles in a state of fatigue. Expect your EP Stress Score
to increase, as muscles begin to fire more normally. Since no
one lives static lives, expect your EP Stress Score to reflect
your activities of daily living. Everything from sitting at the
computer too long to playing sports will impact your score.
