What is the MyoVision Exam?

​MyoVision 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 of minutes. More information can be found here.


Next the most crucial part of the exam, x-rays.  A series of x-rays are taken, based off of your health history,  to show precisely where you have subluxations.  These are important for not only helping to show your progress but also to show any hidden or unknown health conditions to your bones.  X-rays are key to your adjustments when being adjusted with the gonstead method.
