Last July I decided to buy a Myovision.
Not a small purchase – over 5 grand.
I needed to be able to show clients some objective findings besides pain.
I basically had a revolving door pain based practice. People would come in a couple times when they had a flare up, then they’d be gone for 3 months. I had some regulars, sure, however I wanted to do more for people. I was tired of them not “getting it.”
So, I went looking for a way to give my revolving door patients some objective way to show them they needed more care and a way to measure their improvement.
I started looking at the myovision for a couple reasons.
First, a friend of mine said it was a easy way to start and cheaper than an x-ray machine (since then I have found you can actually get an x-ray machine for cheaper).
And second, I was reading The E-Myth Chiropractor at this time, and the co-author, who now is working as a coach, recommended it (the book is average at best and I now disagree with the author on using the Myovision – I’ll do a full review on it later).
So, I figured it was a good idea to get one and so I bought one.
When I got it I immediately sent out flyers to my customers about the new cool thing I got and to come in and get a scan. I had some success with the ad, however I’m not sure how well the people understood the scan results, despite me describing it in simple language.
I began to develop scripts for talking to clients about their scans, and took the device to screenings along with a big monitor like they show on Myovision’s youtube channel.
Being able to take the myovision around is cool, however it’s a lot easier just to bring my Ipad with “Posture Screen Mobile” installed. People also understand posture and how it relates to pain and dysfunction better than they understand surface emg, in my experience.
It just seemed… gimmicky. X-rays are much more powerful, especially when you take them the Everest way and follow the Everest Day 2 scripts.
The findings Myovision provides after a scan just isn’t that powerful as a tool to sell chiropractic. Everybody knows they already have tight muscles. Linking muscle tightness to subluxations is an esoteric concept that the people I talked to didn’t seem to get.
X-ray is much more powerful at showing subluxations, especially when you take the right kind of x-rays where you can see subluxations on film (you will learn about these when you go to Everest Boot Camp).
In all, I don’t recommend getting a Myovision sEMG unless you aren’t allowed to x-ray people in your country, have buckets of cash, or are buying it for a tax write off. I do like the Dyna ROM, and if you do a lot of PI I think the Dyna ROM can be very handy, however I don’t recommend a Myovision sEMG.
If you want something to take with you to screenings, get an Ipad and “Posture Screen Mobile.” You can email the results to your prospect and follow up with them.
For a way to measure objective findings and improvement, Everest Boot Camp is less than half the price of a Myovision, and the value of Boot Camp could easily be 10 times more than the cost. Check out Everest here.
