Understanding the Importance of Your MyoVision Exam
sEMG stands for surface electromyography. sEMG exams measure muscle tension, the amount of electrical activity in muscles when they contract. Muscles have a tendency to tense in an effort to brace against pain and injury. This is a natural defense mechanism of the body.
What the test shows: Colors indicate levels of tension: green represents average, pink is moderately high, and red shows a high level of tension. Yellow readings show abnormally tired muscles. Arrows show the direction of an imbalance.
MyoVision test results provide important physiological information which can help Dr. Pam determine the proper course of care. They can also help Dr. Pam measure your response to care, document your health more effectively, and track your progress over time.
