Spinal Stress ScreeningsSpinal stress screenings measure the scar tissue build up near the spine in the neck and back. Scar tissue is an indicator that damage has occurred around the spine. The damage may have been caused by a physical jolt such as a car accident or sports injury, or it could be caused by poor posture or scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine). A misalignment of the spine can affect the nerves that travel throughout the body and lead to ailments such as back pains, neck pains, headaches, and tingling sensations in the extremities.
A Chiropractor uses a computerized thermography unit to detect higher levels of heat in the skin near the spine. Higher levels of heat indicate more blood flow to the area. Blood flow increases in damaged areas of the body. The test is easy, non intrusive and takes less than 1 minute. Results are given and explained to employees immediately.
Orthotics AnalysisAn Orthotics analysis will determine several things about the way you walk. The screening evaluates pronation and supination, rear to forefoot patterns, weight distribution, and stability. By doing so, a specialist can determine if improper foot mechanics may be causing pain in your feet, knees, and/or hips as a result of being misaligned.
To conduct the analysis, an employees places his or her feet on a digital scanner. The scanner creates a digital footprint of each foot which shows weight distribution and alignment. The specialist compares the results to the standards set forth by the medical industry and determines if an employees has improper foot mechanics. The test is painless and non intrusive (unless you don't like to remove your shoes) and takes less than 5 minutes.
