Subluxation Scan Exams

Algometry (Pain Mapping)

If there was tenderness felt along your spine or if you were suffering from pain when you consulted the doctor, an Algometry (pain Mapping) exam was performed to produce a comprehensive map of the pattern of pain along your spine. This test measures the sensitivity of various locations to pressure.

Range of Motion

The Range of Motion exam measures the amount of movement in regions of your spine. This exam identifies areas of restricted motion and shows if one side moves better than the other.
Your ranges of motion can also be compared to established normal values. This part of the exam helps your doctor find areas of altered spinal mechanics.

Surface EMG

The Surface EMG exam evaluates the function of the muscles that support your spine. These muscles are controlled by nerves. This test shows the pattern of how energy is distributed through these muscles. The exam helps identify areas and patterns of abnormal tension and stress. By precisely measuring muscle activity, your progres scan be followed as your care progresses.

Thermal Scan

 The Thermal Scan is used to assess the part of your nervous system, that helps to control your organs, glands, and blood vessels, the autonomic system. The instrument does this by precisely measuring differences in temperature along the spine. Since proper function of your organs, glands and blood vessels is essential to healing and living well, this test gives your doctor a ‘snapshot’of how this portion of your nervous system is working and ho wit is responding to care.

Pulse Wave Profiler

 The PWP of Pulse Wave Profiler helps the doctor to determine your overall ability to adapt to the environment. It does this by looking at the timing of your pulse, and determining the balance and tone of your nervous system. This exam is known as heart rate variability. Proper balance and tone are associated with better adaptability and a healthy lifestyle. Low heart rate variability is associated with aging and poor heart health. Published research has shown that chiropractic adjustments have a beneficial effect on heart rate variability.

de Behandeling

Om een optimaal resultaat te behalen, bestaat de chiropractische behandeling uit drie fases.

Fase 1: Correctie

Fase van intensieve behandeling waarbij het doel is uw pijn (of andere klachten) te verminderen. De chiropractor zal ervoor zorgen dat de irritatie van de wervelkolom en het zenuwstelsel vermindert. Een tijdelijke verlichting van de klacht betekent niet altijd dat de echte oorzaak is verdwenen. Het is belangrijk dat u uw lichaam genoeg tijd geeft om een goede stabilisatie te bereiken.

Fase 2: Stabilisatie

Door de chiropractische correcties begint de wervelkolom zich gedurende langere periodes te stabiliseren. Klachten verdwijnen of verminderen. Door deze stabilisatie krijgen de zwakke delen in uw lichaam de tijd om te herstellen en aan te sterken.

Fase 3: Onderhoud

De wervelkolom is gestabiliseerd en kan enige stress verwerken. Nu is het belangrijk ervoor te zorgen dat uw lichaam niet geleidelijk aan weer terugkeert naar de oude situatie. U zou het kunnen vergelijken met de tandarts. We laten wel ons gebit elk half jaar controleren, waarom dan niet de wervelkolom?

 

PRO ADJUSTER

A new method of adjusting with the Pro-Adjuster

Chiropractic Clinic Munksgaard has been the first clinic in the Netherlands since 2005 with the newest technologies of chiropractic adjustments. We are convinced that we can offer our patients the best treatments with these technologies. 

Why do we use the Pro-Adjuster?

The Pro-Adjuster provides us with the possibility to standardize our practice. We think it is important that all our patients are treated and examined in the same way, regardless by which chiropractor the patient is treated. Besides this, working with the Pro-Adjuster offers great advantages together with the present treatment methods. 

How does the Pro-Adjuster work? What does the adjustment look like? 
The patient is seated somewhat face down, as a result the spine is slightly bent. Because of this a small space between the vertebras is created and this makes a very precise measurement possible.
The treatment consists of three stages: 

  • examination 
  • treatment 
  • check-up treatment  

The chiropractor starts with examining the spine. The Pro-Adjuster will signal the possible distressed areas and displays these areas on the screen. It shows how the spine looks and which vertebras need treatment. After that, the concerning vertebras will be treated with the help of the Pro-Adjuster. When this has been done a check-up treatment will follow, to check the changes that have occurred. 

What are the major advantages?

  • Accuracy 
    The Pro-Adjuster has been developed with the help of technologies and materials that have also been used by the NASA in space technology. The treatment is done with great accuracy.
  • Visualisation 
    The patient can follow the measurement data and results of the treatment on screen. Because of this, the chiropractor is able to explain clearly where the distressed areas can be found. The Pro-Adjuster has the disposal of an educational programme, with which the chiropractor can give a clear explanation of the nervous system. 
  • Flexibility
    The Pro-Adjuster has the disposal of different possibilities to adjust the treatment according to the wishes of the patient. The treatment is painless and also very suitable for children and elderly people with a lower bone density. 
  • Registration
    The treatments can be registered, through which a complete patient file is developed.
