Healthy vs Unhealthy

A subluxation is a problem in the spine where an abnormal position/movement of the vertebrae disturbs communication within the Central Nervous System causing a disturbance in the body.

The Central Nerve System, which controls ALL FUNCTIONS OF THE BODY, is comprised of three areas. Any or all of these areas may be affected by misalignments (subluxations) of the spine.

1. Motor Nerves

Motor nerves control your movement and posture and when disturbed can lead to abnormal tensions, weakness and fatigue. This is assessed by specific postural analysis and by sEMG (surface electromyography). The sEMG reads the amount of electrical current in your muscles to determine how well your motor nerves are functioning and if they are symmetrical. This is extremely important because the vertebrae in the spine depend on the muscles to move properly. Subluxations (misalignments in the spine) disturb nerve function and cause an abnormal amount of electrical current to flow to your muscles. This leads to muscles becoming weaker or stronger, tighter or fatigued on one side of the spine compared to the other. These are indicated by colors or abnormal patterns in the scan.

2. Autonomic Nerves

Autonomic nerves control all of your organs, immune system and glands (hormones). Thermography measures temperature differences. If your normal body temperature is 98.6F, then the left and right sides of your spine should also be the same. Your skin is the largest organ in the body, and the blood vessels under the skin work as the body's thermostat. (They expand to release heat and contract to retain heat controlling the body's temperature.) When there is disturbance somewhere in the Nervous System, the blood vessels are disturbed, and it causes the body's thermostat to malfunction. This results in an imbalance temperature reading along the spine, which is measured with the Insight™ Millennium. Your blood vessels are controlled by the same part of the Central Nervous System that runs your organs and glands, known as the Autonomic System. This thermal scan provides us with the information to monitor the Autonomic System for proper function.

3. Pain & Sensation

These nerves are the ones that control your ability to sense and perceive pain. Only 10% of your entire nervous system is set up to sense pain. While pain is a strong warning that something is wrong, a lack of pain may not mean that we are totally healthy. The Insight™ Millennium technology helps us assess your nerve and spine health beyond your symptoms. This allows us to catch problems before they become painful and monitor your progress when pain nerves are no longer being affected.

Our state of the art technology will objectively help us:

  1. Detect areas of nerve disturbance
  2. Document and monitor your results
  3. Deliver the appropriate chiropractic care

Frequently asked questions about the Insight™ Millennium

1. Do the Insight™ Millennium scans hurt?

NEVER. The tests are completely non-invasive; they do not use any needles, electrical shock or heat. They are designed to receive information from your Central Nervous System.

2. Why does the Chiropractor administer these tests?

Our purpose is to detect abnormal function in the spine, which cannot be seen on x-ray. Abnormal spinal function causes abnormal Nervous System disturbance.

3. Why is it important to monitor the results?

It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure can disturb Nervous System communication whether or not symptoms are present! Monitoring the functioning of the Nervous System is vital in improving your health and well-being.

4. How will these tests benefit me?

For years, a concern of the public has been, "Why do I have to keep going to the chiropractor even though 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. This technology allows the doctors to provide a "tailor-made" program to meet your specific needs.

5. Are these tests safe for children and pregnant women?

This test can be used repeatedly with patients of all ages including children and pregnant women because it is completely non-invasive.

Testimonials

  • "My son was experiencing handwriting problems at school and the occupational therapist was not able to diagnose them. After his first adjustment, he woke the next morning much cheerier, telling me he slept "awesome." The school therapist called that afternoon to say there were no tremors in his handwriting that day. He looks forward to each appointment. Dr. Greg is fabulous!" (results after 1 adjustment)"
