Dr. Walsh has the most advanced diagnostic equipment in his office. Every new patient will have a computerized surface EMG spinal nerve scan, which shows if the patient has pinched nerves due to vertebral subluxations (misaligned spinal bones). The patient will receive a copy of their results so that they may share it with family and friends. More nerve scans will be done periodically as the patient progresses through treatment in order to help the doctor assess the patient's progress. These nerve tests are painless and only take a few minutes. Spinal x-rays may be necessary, and if so, the x-rays will be taken right in the office.
