Objectively show that you have pain when you move

AMA Gold Standard Range of Motion and Functional Testing

It is common to hear the phrase: “ Pain is subjective and cannot be objectively shown or measured.” We disagree!

We utilize FDA cleared diagnostic equipment that objectively measures the impact of connective tissue injuries by documenting your pain while you move. This allows us to objectively show evidence of pain and injury as well as the effectiveness of treatment.

We do not just say that you have pain – We PROVE it!

We Conduct Tests Using Our Surface EMG Machine

SEMG stands for Surface Electromyography. SEMG is a device which measures the amount of electrical activity your muscles release when they are contracting, more commonly known as muscle tension. It is similar in function to and EKG which measures heart muscle activity.

Not at all. It is totally non-invasive and does not cause pain or irritation. This makes it totally safe for children, pregnant women or seniors. It simply requires the placement of small probes against the skin, with the test taking less than a few minutes.

Muscles will brace or “guard” in response to pain and injury. By showing muscle guarding, we are able to give evidence that supports the likelihood of injury.

This scenario is not uncommon. A person is involved in a car accident or work related injury and has been complaining of neck or back pain that has not improved with conventional treatment. To make matters worse, their X-Rays and MRI do not show any abnormal findings that correlate to their complaints. Now what? Is this person not telling the truth about their pain? Is it all in their head? Without objective proof, whether they are truly experiencing pain or not comes down to the opinions of doctors. The DynaRom eliminates opinion from the discussion.

Dynamic SEMG is backed by Scientific Research

What is Dynamic SEMG? (DynaROM)

Similar to an Electrocardiogram (EKG) that is used to evaluate heart function, a Dynamic SEMG is a non-invasive test that measures and records the electrical activity of muscles during movement. Why is muscle activity important? When a person has pain with movement, their surrounding muscles will compensate by tightening up to brace and guard the injured areas during that movement. Dynamic SEMG objectively shows this abnormal pattern of muscular guarding and dysfunction during movement.
