Chiropractic Adjustments

Not Your Average Chiropractic Expereince

We offer both traditional manual chiropractic adjusts and also computerized adjusting specific for each individual’s needs.

At Eagle Harbor Health & Chiropractic Center we pride ourselves in offering individualized care based upon one’s needs. We provide different adjusting styles ranging from manual methods, for those seeking a more traditional approach,  to computerized adjusting with the Pro Adjuster for those people that prefer a more gentle approach.

The ProAdjuster – A Breakthrough in Healing

Imagine thirty to forty years ago, if we told you that dentistry would be painless, that doctors would watch television to perform surgeries, that brain surgery for tumors could be done with a laser, that fetuses could be operated on within the uterus, that knife-less surgery could be performed- you would not have believed us. By the same token, would you believe us if we told you that Chiropractic treatments and reorientation of the nervous system could be done comfortably, while you were sitting in an upright position without any turning or sudden movements? Would you believe that newborns as well as the elderly with osteoporosis can be treated safely and gently?

Advances in computers and engineering technologies have been able to uniquely blend with Chiropractic in order to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before realized. The potential for the human being to end pain and to achieve their peak nervous system function has never been greater. Humans are consistently asking their bodies to perform at higher levels. Now we have the techniques and the technology to match the demand placed on the spine and the nervous system. We now have the capability to fine tune our own energy and enhance every aspect of our lives.

Complex Technology, Comfortable Adjustment, Simple Solution, The ProAdjuster.

You can achieve maximum health for your body now and in the future beginning with a simple anatomical concept. The nervous system (the brain and all the nerves) controls every function of your body. If this network is interfered with, pain ensues, as does bodily malfunction, resulting in sickness and diminished overall health. The “something” you can do to improve performance and maximize health is to maximize the health of your nervous system. There are several ways to do this. The number one way is allowing a doctor of Chiropractic using the ProAdjuster equipment to analyze and treat your nervous system.

Myovision EMG System

MyoVision, is ‘sEMG’ which stands for Surface Electromyography (sEMG). It was originally developed for use by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) to measure the effects of zero gravity and fatigue on their astronauts when they return from outer space to earth. It is a computerized spinal examination, which utilizes a sensing device that measures and evaluates the relative levels of electrical activity your muscles release when they are contracting, more commonly known as “muscle tension”. Similar in function to an ECG/EKG (Electrocardiogram) which measures heart muscle activity, the Static sEMG Test measures the electrical activity of the posture-sustaining spinal muscles. Increased muscle tension is associated with stress and misaligned vertebrae that affect the nervous system; a condition known as the Vertebral Subluxation.

Think of our MyoVision System as a stethoscope for the spine. Because chiropractic focuses on the health and integrity of the nervous system, it makes sense that we have a way of objectively measure it. Our  MyoVision Computerized Diagnostic Equipment allows us to do just that — bringing a “high-tech edge” to your chiropractic care. The  multifunctional capabilities of the MyoVision System allow us to  demonstrate the effects of the vertebral subluxation complex (spinal misalignment) in different capacities. Not only can any one, or combination, of the different “tools” of this system mark an objective baseline of your condition at the beginning of care, but, perhaps more importantly, can serve as a way to accurately,  and impartially, measure your progress. This helps both of us to know we are “hitting the mark” in getting the improvement we need to further your health goals towards attaining optimum health.

The reported levels of muscle tension are recorded in numerical values and by colored bars, with arrows indicating muscle tone imbalance(s). When correlated with X-Ray and other testing we perform at Advanced Healthcare, the sEMG gives us additional information to help correct the cause of your symptoms.

When patients present themselves with spinal bones (vertebrae) that are misaligned (subluxated), their spinal nerves can become irritated, leading to many negative effects. By interfering with the communication between the brain and the body, a Vertebral Subluxation leads to improper electrical impulses, which can lead to poor health.

At Eagle Harbor Health & Chiropractic we are pleased to offer state-of-the-art computerized sEMG scanning which provides Dr. Petheram with a high-tech tool used to evaluate those specific areas/levels of the nervous system that are being adversely affected by Vertebral Subluxations (bones out of place, causing nerve irritation). MyoVision is supported by numerous quality research papers and is  currently the only device, which enables the muscle tension around the  spine to be evaluated in the standing, static posture.
