Over 30% of the sensory information needed to balance the body comes from
the joints and muscles of the head and neck. The head is designed to be
straight and the eyes to look level with the horizon. The center for
equilibrium (balance) is located within the ears. Any misalignment
in the neck drastically affects the body’s balance and equilibrium
through neurological input and output. The brain will use the
muscles to shift the entire spine in an effort to balance the
head, eyes and ears to allow upright movement. Click Here For Video
Infrared Thermography precisely measures differences in
temperature along the spine. It is used to assess the part of the
nervous system that helps to control blood vessels, organs and
Determines overall ability to adapt to stress. It does this by looking at the
timing of the pulse & determining the balance and tone of the nervous
system (HRV). Proper balance and tone are associated with better
adaptability & a healthy lifestyle. Low heart rate variability is associated
with aging & poor heart health. Clinical and published research
has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments have
favorable effects on HRV parameters.
Wireless Range of Motion measures how well your spine is able to
move in all it's ranges of motion. Lack of motion is the first sign
that the nervous system may not be functioning properly. Click For Video.
This technology reads electrical activity (action potential) in
order to measure paraspinaltension, similar to the use of
electromyography in EKG/heart rate measurement machines.
HRV refers to the beat-to-beat variability of the heart and provides
incredible insight into autonomic nervous system function. Though
it may seem counterintuitive, a higher HRV is actually a good
thing. It means that there is a greater variability in the
time between heart beats so this organ is better able to
respond to stress, sickness or physical activity. Click Here for Video.
The Pulse Wave Profiler tool helps the doctor to determine your
overall ability to adapt to the environment. Stressful lifestyle
habits including poor dietary choices, limited exercise and constant
emotional aggravation can cause the body to be caught in the
"fight-flight" response. Low heart rate variability is associated
with accelerated aging and poor heart health. Published research has
shown that chiropractic adjustments have a beneficial effect on heart
The Surface EMG exam evaluates the function of the muscles that
support and move your spine. These muscles are controlled by the nerves
running within it. This test measures how much energy is needed to
maintain your posture and how it is distributed throughout the muscles.
The Neuro Thermal Scan is used to assess the part of your nervous
system that helps to control your organs, glands, and blood vessels.
The autonomic nervous system works alongside the spinal nerves to
regulate your immunity while managing your internal organ functions.
When used together, these instruments can detect hidden patterns of stress and tension, shedding a light on internal changes in the body. By establishing a baseline and identifying potential problem areas, the INSiGHT™ technologies help the doctor determine the most effective path when caring for each of our patients.
