Getting a Static Muscle Scan can help you find out.
What is a Static Muscle Scan?
A Static Muscle Scan scan is a functional test that measures muscle guarding and range of motion at the same time as the patient moves. By moving the patient, we effectively elicit measurable pain responses and guarding when soft tissue injury is present.
This technique is not painful and does not cause irritation which makes this process safe for children, pregnant women, and seniors. It simply requires the placement of small electrodes against the skin.
How Can a Static Muscle Scan Help Me?
The Static Muscle Scan is used to test for documenting the quality and quantity of soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and disc) injury from an auto accident or work injury. Sensors are placed on the body to measure both how far you can bend, and your muscle guarding response. The resulting data is used to aid in establishing need for care, tracking your progress over time, and substantiating the cause of injury. Range of motion testing, in combination with dynamic sEMG (surface ElectroMyoGraphy) for measuring muscle guarding, has helped win and increase settlements in a series of major injury cases.

Is it painful?
Not at all. It is non-invasive and does not cause pain or irritation. This makes it safe for children, pregnant women and seniors. It simply requires the placement of small electrodes against the skin.
What do the results mean?
Colors indicate level of tension, with green, pink, red and yellow corresponding with average, moderately high, high and very low readings respectively. Percent difference displayed is the difference between left and right sides at the level measured, with arrows pointing the direction of imbalance.
Both very high (red) and very low (yellow) readings are significant. High readings (red) are typically seen in the acute phase of spinal subluxation or injury, while very low readings (yellow) are commonly seen when muscles are in a chronic state of fatigue.
How does this relate to my health?
Just as blood pressure cuff is used to track your cardiovascular health, the Static Muscle Scan is used to track your spinal health. The data helps determine the proper course of care and track your progress over time. Although a Static Muscle Scan can be performed at anytime with valuable results, there are certain factors which can influence the results of your test. Please take a moment to answer the questions fully to the best of your knowledge.
