MuscleHealth Physical

How is my patient/athlete's routine affecting their MuscleHealth?

This assessment provides an individualized view into key MuscleHealth factors to help 

  • Track important contributors to health and wellbeing 
  • Assess current status and potential of a muscles' fuel storage capacity 
  • Measure baseline and subsequent period comparisons to follow effects of intervention
1
Select MuscleHealth Physical from the menu
Scan at least one to two days after exercise to ensure the muscle(s) are at rest, and recovered from prior sessions.
2
Scan Muscles of Interest
Both left and right thigh scans will provide the best snapshot of your body's MuscleHealth. Add additional muscle groups as needed.
3
Design an intervention with the assistance of results
Summary statuses provide an overall view of current muscle size and rating.
MuscleSound will also analyze the recent trends of your patients/athletes providing a broader perspective of their status, particularly how 'lifestyle habits and behaviors' may impact MuscleHealth.
Charts will also provide feedback on historical responses to your interventions. What was effective previously? How did their MuscleHealth respond?
It is also valuable to drill-down into a specific muscle group or muscle side to ask some questions about what could be the cause of abnormal results.
4
Schedule a follow-up session
This is not a calendar tool. Use the scheduling tool to help remind the subject/athlete of the prescribed intervention, have these results sent to them in a reminder to be sure they return for a follow-up.
5
Perform a series of follow-up assessments as necessary
Track and monitor the response of you interventions. Modify as needed.

Muscle Size

The sizes and their categories are charted, status based on % difference

Muscle Fuel Rating

Status Determination

Statuses are determined from an extensive MuscleSound database of scanned images.

will indicate % size difference is in the top 25th percentile

will indicate % size difference is between the top 50th and 25th percentiles

will indicate % size difference is in the bottom 50th percentile (normal)

When multiple muscle groups are scanned, or if there is a trend to consider the status is determined by this table
