Frequently Asked Questions

CBP is an abbreviation for Chiropractic Biophysic. CBP® is a very advanced technique that emphasizes optimal posture and spinal alignment as the primary goals of chiropractic care while simultaneously improving pain and function. The uniqueness of CBP® treatment is in structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture.

MedX is the most technologically advanced fitness, sports and medical/rehabilitation equipment available. MedX offers the only FDA registered Medical Strengthening Devices in the United States for strengthening both the lumbar and cervical areas of the spine.

Patented, effective pelvic restraint system that keeps gluteus and hamstring muscles from interfering with the targeted exercise area, Provides isolation of the lumbar spine muscles, increases stability and allows specific, intensive strengthening.

Biomechanically precise – trains the flexion and extension muscles of the neck for improved range of motion

Stretches and strengthens the cervical spinal muscles while promoting increased omnidirectional strength and flexibility of entire neck.

An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. An EMG is done to:

  • Find diseases that damage muscle tissue, nerves, or the junctions between nerve and muscle. These problems may include a herniated disc, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or myasthenia gravis (MG)./li>
  • Find the cause of weakness, paralysis, or muscle twitching. Problems in a muscle, the nerves supplying a muscle, the spinal cord, or the area of the brain that controls a muscle can cause these symptoms.

A bone density scan can detect thinning bones at an early stage, osteoporosis or osteopenia. If you already have osteoporosis, bone scans can also tell you how fast the disease is progressing. The most common test for tracking bone density over time is the DXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan. A DXA (sometimes pronounced “dexa”) scan is fast, accurate, pain-free, and has very low radiation.

Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, or DEXA, is the most common method to measure a patient’s BMD. There are small DEXA scanners called peripheral DEXA machines. These machines often measure BMD at the heel (calcaneus), shin bone (distal tibia), middle finger, or kneecap (patella). Regular DEXA machines have a standard reference (called NHANES III) that can be used for all machines, no matter the manufacturer.

Spinal traction gently extends the neck or lower back, opening the spaces between the vertebrae and temporarily alleviating pressure on the affected discs, joints, and nerves. The 2 way traction devices used at HealthQuest were invented by Dr. Tran. The cyclic load/unloading will enhance spinal correction and relaxation of muscles, which translate to faster, better results, meaning less pain, more flexibility,
and improved function for the patients. These devices are used to provide more permanent relief and improved health for patients through spine and postural correction. These results have been proven in peer-reviewed studies: APMR 2002.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia is a procedure that primarily originated with the osteopathic profession, and has been utilized for the treatment of joint and spinal pain since the late 1930’s.

During the past several years, the use of MUA has greatly increased due to advances in both technique and in anesthesiology.

It is well-documented in medical literature for over 75 years that most spinal conditions respond well to MUA.

Today, MUA is a multi-disciplinary out-patient procedure that takes place in a certified surgical center under medical supervision.
