Technology and Diagnostic Equipment
At Ridgefield Chiropractic & Wellness Center, LLC we pride ourselves on being one of the most technologically advanced chiropractic offices in the area. We have invested in some of the most recent and advanced technology to evaluate our patients.
We rely on objective findings in the evaluation of our patients to ensure the best possible care. It also allows us to more effectively evaluate progress in the office and determine the necessity for continued chiropractic care.
Surface Electromyography (sEMG) is used to measure muscular tone. It utilizes electrodes that are passively pressed against the skin of the back to measure the electricalcontraction of the muscles.
The measurement is then compared to normal data. The sEMG will detect areas of increased tone (spasm) or reduced tone (weakness) of the spinal muscles as well as evaluating symmetry. It allows us to evaluate the effects of vertebral subluxation complex on the motor nervous system.
