STATE OF THE ART DIAGNOSTIC TECHNOLOGY
MYOVISION & sEMG
The MyoVision exam is non-invasive; it does not cause pain or irritation. The test itself only takes a few minutes and simply requires the placement of scanning instruments against the skin. It is safe for patients of all ages, including infants, children, pregnant women and seniors.
Surface Electromyography (sEMG) exams measure muscle tension by looking at the amount of electrical activity that occurs in muscles when they contract. An sEMG exam is similar to an EKG exam, which measures heart activity. Just as an EKG can help determine the health of your heart, the MyoVision test results provide important physiological information which help Dr. Shepherd determine the proper course of care. MyoVision exams also help Dr. Shepherd measure your response to care, document your health more effectively, and track your progress over time.
