Muscle and Strength Testing

Muscle/Strength Testing

Muscle Testing is one of the most credible, understood, established, objective, and accepted methods for documenting spinal FUNCTION.  They are consistent, reliable and reproducible outcome assessments not only for impairment or disability but also monitoring and documenting treatment effectiveness and medical necessity.

Our computerized muscle testing systems automatically create two types of session reports that can be used for insurance reimbursement, prove medical necessity, increase attorney referrals as well as patient education. These reports compare all the test visits and automatically calculate percentage of improvement over time. They also compare the left to right side, if applicable, and calculate limitation.

ADDED BONUS!

This system now includes the Physical Performance Test Report documenting Cervical Neck Pain using our muscle testing equipment.
