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.
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.
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.

Onze chiropractoren doen chiropractische, orthopedische en neurologische testen. Daarnaast kunnen we een iDXA-scan maken in onze praktijken in Heemstede en Zaanstad. Indien gewenst zullen we ook röntgenfoto’s of MRI-scans laten maken of opvragen, zodat we alle benodigde informatie hebben. Op basis van de onderzoeksresultaten kan de chiropractor een behandelplan vaststellen. Als hij/zij u niet kan helpen, dan zal dit worden toegelicht.
