A problem in the spine where abnormal position/movement of the vertebrae disturbs communication within the Central Nervous System causing abnormal function of the body.
To summarize, your body can be malfunctioning for months, even years, before you experience any symptoms. Since symptoms are always the last to show and the first to go, it is important to monitor the function of your Central Nervous System before symptoms occur. This is why your chiropractor utilizes the Insight Sublaxation Station*.
SEMG measures the electric current from the muscles
Muscle Balance in extremely important because the vertebrae depend on the muscles to move properly.
If your body temperature is 98.6 degrees, then the left and right sides of your spine should also be the same temperature.
Absolutely not. The tests do not utilize any needles, electrical shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important information from your Central Nervous System.
Our purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the spine which cannot be seen on X-ray. Abnormal spinal function causes abnormal Nervous System disturbance. The two standard tests will measure: 1) SEMG - the amount of electrical current in the muscles, 2) Thermography - skin temperature along the spine.
Your chiropractor wants the best results for patients like yourself. He/she can easily monitor your changes through periodic progress exams. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure (the weight of a dime!) can disturb the communication of the Nervous System whether or not symptoms are present. It offers a great way to measure results and progress once symptoms have subsided. It is key to improving your health and well-being.
For years, a major concern of the public has been, 'Why do I have to keep coming back when I'm pain-free?' or 'How do I know if I'm getting the proper amount of adjustments?' Now you are able to actually see the changes, and it will be easier to understand the amount and type of care you are receiving. Because of this technology, your chiropractor can provide a tailor-made program to meet your specific health needs.
