Surface ElectroMyoGram Scan (SEMG)
Our Insight device is an amazing diagnostic tool that accurately and
graphically charts imbalances in your spinal column, muscles, and
Autonomic Nervous System. It reads the amount of electric current in your spinal muscles to determine how well your
autonomic and motor nerves are functioning. This is the same technology
that is used in NASA's space program and for olympic athletes.
balance (symmetry) is extremely important because vertebrae in the
spine depend on the muscles to move properly. Subluxations (fixated
misalignments in the spine or other joints) disturb nerve function and
cause an abnormal amount of electrical current to flow to your muscles.
Abnormal electrical currents on either side of the spine cause muscle
imbalance to occur. As a result, the muscles can become weaker or
stronger, tighter or fatigued.
The Surface EMG scan detects
abnormal muscle patterns, revealing an increased amount of tension/pull
on one side of the spine compared to the other.Call us to get your scan TODAY!!!! 925-949-8911
A clear example of scan with the pear-shape pattern.
sEMG Amplitude Scan
patients sEMG scan is compared to normal. We are viewing the amplitude
(amount of tension) of paraspinal muscle activity, along with hyper- or
hypo-tonicity as it compares to a normal population. Green bars
indicate one standard deviation over normal, or mild elevation. Blue
bars indicate moderate elevation and Red bars indicate severe elevation.
Yellow indicates one standard deviation below normal.
sEMG Asymmetry Scan
scan of a patients muscle asymmetry depicts the amount of muscle pull
from one side to another. Normal is marked by white spikes or no spikes
at all. The same colors are used here green, blue and red for mild,
moderate and severe levels of muscle asymmetry respectively.
