Digital Thermographic Scan

The scan enables us to measure and interpret how your nervous system is functioning. Two infrared sensors measure the difference in temperature on each side of your spine. Inflammatory ‘hot spots’ on the spine are recorded and a printed image produce to enable the Chiropractor to pin-point exact areas where the stress on your spine and spinal nerves. Your skin temperature is controlled by the ANS (autonomic nervous system) which also controls your breathing, heart rate, organ function. We are able to localise joint and nerve problems that cause painful bad backs: by

1. Measuring the difference in skin temperature

2. Surface EMG: measures muscle activity in your spine muscles, nerve test 

3. Movement: records movement of your spine joints

The results of the five tests provide a wellness score out of 100. The higher the score the better your nerve and spine function.

24 Hour Digital X-ray Diagnosis or plain Radiographs

Digital radiography 01 DR pckv xxX-rays may be necessary to rule out pathology, taken when clinically justified. Revealing the structure and integrity of your spine, joints, nerve space, disc damage, type of arthritis, bone quality- osteoporosis or other defects or rule out fractures.

We can arrange a referral for MRI Scans if indicated

Digital MSK-Sonographs

Musculoskeletal ultrasound provides quick, accurate dynamic evaluation which provides visual soft tissue damage, nerve impingement, fracture, calcified tendons that sometimes cannot be seen or missed on an x-ray

Gait Scans

• You walk on a pressure plate thousands of sensors measure the distribution of weight you walk with each and place on your feet step. See the results straight away.

• Maps Foot Pressure: from your step, the PC displays a 2D or 3D visual presentation of both your right and left foot individually. Helping the Clinician and patient to understand the way you are walking, detect foot dysfunction due to a foot condition such as diabetes, fallen arches, bunions, hammertoes, Morton's neuroma or even disturbance of foot growth due to polio.
