We can provide:

Neuromuscular Testing

  • Involves using a computer and a digital myograph to measure the amount of force generated by the contractions of the muscles.
  • The results give the chiropractor an idea of how well your muscles are functioning so that he can plan out an individualized rehabilitation program specific to your needs as a patient.
  • Takes x-ray and CT scan results to the next level, proving the functionality or lack thereof as shown in scan results.

Cervical and Lumbar Range of Motion Exam

Electromyography (EMG)/Nerve Conduction Velocity/Evoked Potential

  • The EMG provides measurable data about your nerve function or dysfunction. The instrument used measures the electrical currents within the targeted muscle to show how much or how little damage has been done to the nerve, by observing abnormal wave patterns.
  • Nerve conduction velocity tests provide results that can indicate abnormal pressure on the nerves and even nerve disease.This test is particularly useful in proving the presence or absence of carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Evoked potential tests nerve pathways through electrodes connected to the skin.


In office x-rays

  • We provide x-rays to detect misalignment of the spine right from the comfort of his office as a chiropractor in St. James.
