Health concerns are unique to each individual. Some people just need to get out of pain, while others hope to regain lost enjoyment or quality of life. Brain & Spine Clinics in Bellingham customizes your care specifically to your needs.
We are equipped to help you reach your health goals by providing leading diagnostic and treatment options. Brain & Spine Clinics takes an overall view of our patient’s health and supports their health concerns from a comprehensive integrative approach by reviewing possible functional problems or physiological lesions. This involves a multi-system review including Neurology, Endocrinology and Immunology. The examination and diagnostic procedures we utilize includes in-depth history and physical examination, neurological and orthopedic testing, which are supplemented with functional neurology, ScanVision Static EMG and DynaROM in our office. If indicated, referral for x-rays, MRIs, CTs, nerve conduction velocity or electroymyogram or blood lab tests shall be recommended.
The E-Scan from MyoVision is a computerized spinal exam. Think of it as a picture of your back muscles. MyoVision utilizes technology similar to the EKG. Instead of measuring heart muscle patterns, we measure the muscular compensation about the spine. This data is used as a baseline to track your health progress over time.
DynaROM is used to test for pain as a result of soft issue injury from an auto accident or work injury. Sensors are placed on the skin to measure both how far you can bend, and your muscle guarding response. You are required to perform various motions as the sensors graph these measures. This data is used to aid in establishing need for care and tracking your progress over time. This test is completely safe and painless.
Equipment used in the office is manufactured by MyoVision, and is even featured in the American Medical Association’s “The Practical Guide to Range of Motion Assessment.” It is safe, reliable, and helps to establish the most effective treatment plan to help you get better!
