Dr. Pleva Represents the WAVi of the Future

Dr. Ramona Pleva, owner of Northern Lights Chiropractic, expanded her practice in 2021 to include WAVi brain scanning technology. The WAVi EEG is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved device that objectively measures brain function. Brain power, reaction time and other measurements that may reflect memory, focus and concentration challenges can be assessed. WAVi scans are also showing trends of brain imbalances associated with mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.

            “The WAVi is also a great assessment tool that can aid in the diagnosis of traumatic brain injuries and concussions. The WAVi brain scan can gather a plethora of information on brain function in less than an hour!” says Pleva. “We can use the WAVi scans in conjunction with other healthcare providers to assist in objectively measuring patient progress throughout their course of care.”

            Chiropractic patients also enjoy gentle, specific, individualized care. Pleva goes beyond the spine and has helped those with TMJ issues, shoulder, knee and other extremity misalignments. “We strive to maximize the overall function of our patients so they can go out and do the things they love with the people who mean the most to them,” says Pleva. She is a graduate of Life University College of Chiropractic, in Marietta, Georgia, and is thrilled to be practicing back home in Northern Michigan.
