Spinemaster Alignment Evaluation
For further evaluation purposes, NUCCA chiropractic offices typically utilize specialty equipment such as The Spinemaster, the Anatometer and/or the Gravitational Stress Analysis (GSA) to gain understanding of a patients spinal condition.
At Spine Wellness Center, we utilize The Spinemaster. This particular instrument measures the body for balance, “how you are standing” in a 3 dimensional way. With this device, we take specific posture measurements while you are in the upright standing position. If you have had an injury, even a small one like hitting your head on a cabinet or taking a fall to the ground, it can disrupt your center of gravity. It is not uncommon for the upper body to favor more to the right side or the left side. We also measure if the hips are level or un-level and whether or not the the body is rotating to the right side or to the left. The scale measurements are not there to weigh you, they actually measure how much weight is being carried on the right side compared to the left side.
Many patients find this to be such a mind blowing portion of the appointment, especially with their hips are found to be un-level and one leg is shorter than the other. Why? Some patients have stated that, “my pants have always needed to be hemmed because my right leg is longer than the left, or vice versa. Using at least one of these 3 instruments is vital for our findings. At Spine Wellness Center, we utilize the Spinemaster at every one of our adjustment appointments for accurate diagnosis results.
