Our Latest Medical Technology

sEMG with Computerized Spinal Ranges of Motion Examination

In the evidence-based model, objective data is crucial in evaluating patient’s in both determining proper treatment and in evaluating both progress and effectiveness of chosen treatment methodology. One method of evaluating the cervical spine for whiplash is the use of simultaneous measurement of range of motion and muscle guarding, as recommended by John Gerhardt, MD, author of the AMA Publication “A Practical Guide to Range of Motion Assessment”. As Gerhardt stated in his written evaluation of this technology, known as DynaROM, by combining muscle guarding measurement we effectively increase sensitivity and specificity of range of motion measures. The process is simple: With electrodes attached, using EKG technology, we simply perform a standard range of motion assessment but with the simultaneous measurement of muscle guarding. Muscle guarding is the body’s natural defense mechanism to pain and spinal dysfunction, and clinically provides a wealth of information one cannot achieve through the typical subjective measures, including range of motion.


Dr. Saboe provides expert evaluations and treatment of auto “whiplash” injuries and On the job injuries as the only chiropractic Physician in Oregon who Is “board certified” in all three specialties of Orthopedics, Neurology, And Forensic Medical Science. Focusing on the treatment of “slipped Discs” (disc herniation) Dr. Saboe has prevented many unnecessary spinal surgeries.
