Imagine thirty to forty years ago, if we told you that dentistry would be painless, that doctors would watch a screen to perform surgeries, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus, that knife-less surgery could be performed – you would not have believed us. By the same token, would you believe us if we told you that Chiropractic treatments and reorientation of the nervous system could be done comfortably, while you were sitting in an upright position without any turning or sudden movements? Would you believe that newborns as well as the elderly with osteoporosis can be treated safely and gently?
Advances in computers and engineering technologies have been able to uniquely blend with Chiropractic in order to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before realized. The potential for the human being to end pain and to achieve their peak nervous system function has never been greater. Humans are consistently asking their bodies to perform at higher levels. Now we have the techniques and the technology to match the demand placed on the spine and the nervous system. We now have the capability to fine tune our own energy and enhance every aspect of our lives. To better understand, let’s examine the idea of palpation. When a Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the nerve function is called a subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, the ProAdjuster can determine whether the vertebra’s motion is too rigid or too fluid. The spine should not be too rigid (hypo-mobile). However, instead of utilizing the doctor’s judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the ProAdjuster measures precise levels ofmotion. Therefore, the ProAdjuster can isolate a problem area faster and more accurately than manual procedures.
The piezoelectric sensor in the ProAdjuster instrument responds and registers information faster than your body’s ability to react. Therefore, a precise and accurate picture of the extent of rigidity or fluidity of each vertebra is reflected. A light force is introduced into the vertebra to check motion, it is reflected back to the piezoelectric sensor, which measures the reflective force, sending it to the computer for interpretation, all before the muscle can respond in its normal way. Isn’t that incredible? This is the same technology and same type of instrument that NASA engineers have used in the space program in order to evaluate the integrity of the ceramic cooling tiles on the outside of the space shuttle. The aviation industry, as well as civil engineer shave used this technology in order to test metal fatigue in aircraft and bridge spans. Chiropractors are now able to use this highly sophisticated technology applied to the human body in order to determine proper function. We can have the same level of care given to our bodies as multi- million dollar spacecraft. Doesn’t that give you a sense of being special and give you a higher level of confidence?
Along with the diagnostic and treatment methods used at Health Connection, we provide a comprehensive understanding of your situation and can adjust your level of treatment accordingly. It is our privilege to bring this cutting edge Chiropractic technology to Portugal.
The Surface Electromyography helps to identify the relationship and functioning of muscles and spine, thus assisting in creating an effective treatment plan.
The sEMG measures the emission natural electrical activity of muscles when contracted. This test is performed standing in a neutral position and the sensors will be placed along the spine to make the appropriate measurements. This test allows doctors quantify and easily see the areas of minor or major problems. It also allows patients to show the results in an easy to understand and also be able to monitor and discuss progress.
The best is that the test does not cause any discomfort!
