Joint Vibration Analysis – TMJD Melbourne FL
Joint Vibration Analysis:
A very simple principle
Bio-JVA Joint Vibration Analysis is based on simple principles of motion and friction: When smooth surfaces rub together, little friction is created…and little vibration. If these surfaces become rough, then friction and vibration are created when these surfaces articulate.
BioJVA™ Fast and Accurate
JVA provides a fast, non-invasive, and repeatable measurement of TMJ function to aid in the diagnosis of TMJ function.
How it works
Human joints have surfaces which rub together in function. Smooth, well lubricated surfaces in a proper biomechanical relationship produce little friction and little vibration. But surface changes, such as those caused by degeneration, tears, or displacements of the disk, generally produce friction and vibration. Different disorders can produce different vibration patterns or “signatures”. PC-assisted vibration analysis helps identify these patterns and helps your doctor to distinguish among various TM disorders.
Recorded by staff, read by the Doctor
A JVA recording only takes 20 minutes of patient time, and less than 3 minutes of staff time. Interpretation is done by Dr Patel and takes only a few minutes.
