The M2000 system is utilised as a diagnostic tool in the
treatment care plan of all patients at PIHC.
This system is designed to provide not only accurate and
objective clinical data for you and your practitioner, it is
also used for test and retest reliability as an
accountability tool and importantly to assist in accurately
gauging your spinal muscular recovery and wellness.
M2000 scans are painless and do not utilise any radiation,
high level electricity or intense heat.
- Purpose -
To detect and identify abnormal function of the spine and
muscles. Abnormal spinal muscular function leads directly
to abnormal nervous system imbalance. The standard tests we
Electromyography (EMG) scan
As the muscles are
controlled by nerves, this scan measures how well the motor nerves are
working by reading the amount of current or electrical conductivity
found in the musculature. Any muscular imbalance or misalignment of the
joints will cause a disturbance in the nerve, thereby causing an
abnormal amount of electrical current flowing through your muscles which
is recorded by the M2000 device.
The device measures the skin temperature adjacent to the spine. The
skin is the largest organ of the body and the blood vessels under the
skin work as the body’s thermostat. Like the body’s organs and glands,
the blood in itself is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. Both
sides of your spine should be at the same temperature when all is well.
If the communication between the nervous system and the blood vessels
are disturbed, it causes the body’s thermostat to malfunction, producing
an imbalanced temperature reading along the spine. This thermal scan
therefore monitors how the autonomic system of your body is doing and
indirectly the associated organs at the various adjacent levels.
How will the test benefit me?
Your PIHC practitioner will undertake the assessment both
as a pre-commencement program and at the time of your
clinical review, as a post assessment. This enables the
practitioner to determine the progression in your treatment
plan whilst also recording a quantitative measure of your
The changes are quantifiable and visual to you, and at
the same time enabling your PIHC practitioner to provide an
individualised care program for your health.
The M2000 assessment is administered by occupational
therapists at PIHC and is regarded as an occupational
therapy assessment that should be claimable in part or whole
through most private health insurance funds depending on
type of health cover, insurer benefits and levels of health
