The Insight Millenium Subluxation Station gives a comprehensive evaluation of the neurospinal function index (NSFi) which allows for a chiropractor to analyze a patient’s condition more accurately, communicate findings more simply, and track the effectiveness of the treatment.
The Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP) helps in determining your overall ability to adapt to the environment. It does so by looking at the timing of you pulse, and determining the balance and tone of your nervous system. This exam is known as heart rate variability. Proper balance and tone are associated with better adaptability and a healthy lifestyle. Low heart rate variability is associated with aging and poor heart health. Published research has shown that chiropractic adjustments have a beneficial effect on heart rate variability.
The Thermal scan is used to assess the part of your nervous system that helps control your organs, glands, and blood vessels, the autonomic system. The instrument does so by precisely measuring differences in temperature along the spine. Since proper function of your organs, glands, and blood vessels is essential to healing and living well, this test gives the doctor a ‘snapshot’ of how this portion of your nervous system is working and how it is responding to care.
The Surface EMG exam evaluates the function of the muscles that support your spine. These muscles are controlled by nerves. This test shows the pattern of how energy is distributed through these muscles. This exam helps identify areas and patterns of abnormal tension and stress. By precisely measuring muscle activity, your progress can be followed as your care progresses.
The Range of Motion exam measures the amount of movement in different areas of your spine. The exam shows areas of restricted motion and if one side moves better than the other. Your ranges of motion can be compared to established normal values. This part of the exam helps the doctor find areas of altered spinal mechanics.
