does this test hurt?
no, you can't feel anything. the sensor device only receives information from your muscles.
why does dr. friedman administer these tests?
the purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the spine which cannot be seen on x-ray or picked up on a hands on examination. abnormal spinal function causes abnormal nervous system disturbance. this test will measure:
1. semg — the amount of electrical current in the muscles
2. thermography — skin temperature along the spine.

surface electromyography (semg scan)
your muscles are controlled by nerves. the semg measures how well the motor nerves are working by reading the amount of current found in the muscles. subluxations (misalignments) disturb the function of the nerves causing an abnormal amount of electrical current flowing to your muscles (indicated by colors and/or abnormal patterns).
