At the Optimal Chiropractic wellness centre we use the latest technology available for evaluation of muscular and nervous system imbalance. In order to evaluate the functioning of the nervous system, two computerised evaluations are performed as part of every patient examination. We use the sEMG scans to evaluate the electrical activity of the muscles in order to access the quality, quantity, and symmetry of muscle tension. Because nerves control your muscles, spinal misalignments (Subluxations) disturb overall nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical current to flow to the musculature.This advanced tool also measures body temperature symmetry by evaluating skin temperature. 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 Nervous System, which regulates organ and gland function. This information is useful in our patient assessment, and allows us to measure the beneficial changes that result from Chiropractic care over time. Clients receive a colour printout of each scan, which increases their understanding of the overall balance of the nervous system.
