Technology for Nervous System Evaluation
About Life Chiropractic uses the latest technology available for evaluation of muscular and nervous system imbalance. Two computerized evaluations are performed as part of every patients examination to evaluate the nervous system functioning.
Surface Electromyography (sEMG)
The sEMG measures the quality, quantity, and symmetry of muscle tension and spasm by evaluating the electrical activity of muscles. Because nerves control your muscles, Subluxations disturbs overall nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical current to flow to the musculature.
This advanced tool measures body temperature symmetry by evaluating skin temperatures. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and the blood vessels act as your thermostat. The blood vessels are controlled by the Autonomic Nerve System that regulates organ and gland function.
This information, taken in concert with your health history and clinical findings, is useful in our assessment, and as an outcome assessment of the beneficial changes that result from chiropractic care. Patients receive a color printout of each examination, which increases their understanding of the overall balance of the nerve system.
If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and have questions about differences between chiropractors, let Dr. Carleton answer them. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
Think of an adjustment as tuning a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.
