Second Generation Subluxation Station
Nelson Chiropractic Health Center is proud to
announce the newest technological addition to
their practice. Insight Millennium is a
state-of-the-art subluxation station that will
objectively help us:
detect areas of nerve disturbance along your spine,
document and monitor your results as you are
and deliver appropriate and custom chiropractic
Do the Insight Millennium
not. The tests do not utilize any needles, electrical
shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important
information from your Central Nervous System.
Why does the chiropractor
administer these tests?
for administering these test 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 standard tests will measure:
- the amount of electrical current in the muscles
Thermography - skin temperature along the
Why is it important to
monitor the results?
Chiropractic Health Center wants the best results for
patients like yourself. They can easily monitor your
changes through periodic progress exams. It has been
proven that a very slight amount of pressure can disturb
the communication of the Nervous System weather or not
symptoms are present. How can the chiropractor measure
the results after removing pressure? The advanced
technology of the Insight Millennium. This is vitally
necessary to monitor how the spine is working. It is key
to improving your health and well-being.
How will this test benefit
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, Nelson
Chiropractic Health Center can provide a "tailor-made"
program to meet your specific health needs.
are controlled by nerves. The SEMG measures how well the
motor nerves are working by reading the amount of
current found in the muscles.
Subluxations (misalignments) disturb the function of
the nerve causing an abnormal amount of electrical
current flowing to your muscles (indicated by colors
and/or abnormal patterns.)
Muscle Balance — Symmetry
Balance is extremely important because the vertebrae in
the spine depend on the muscles to move properly. If one
or more vertebrae are out of their normal position, it
disturbs nerve function. This disturbance creates muscle
imbalance caused by an abnormal amount of electrical
current in the muscles on either side of the spine. As a
result of this disturbance, the muscles can become
weaker or stronger, tighter or fatigued. The abnormal
muscle pattern on the scan reveals an increased amount
of tension/pull on one side compared to the other
(similar to a Tug-of-War).
If your body
temperature is 98.6 degrees, then the left and right
sides of your spine should also be the same temperature.
Your skin is the largest organ of 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 the communication
between the Nervous System and the blood vessels is
disturbed, it causes the body's thermostat to
malfunction producing an imbalanced temperature reading
along the spine. These 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 information to
monitor the autonomic system for proper function.
When the range of motion
is restricted, your ability to move is limited and
causes tress on the parts involved —l this begins a
decaying process. This process not only affects the
problem areas, but left uncorrected will negatively
affect the areas above and below it (i.e. domino
effect). This process is similar to your vehicle's front
end — when out of alignment, it limits proper movement
of the tires, causing uneven wear and tear on certain
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 first to go, it is important to monitor
the function of your Nervous System which is why Nelson
Chiropractic Health Center utilizes the Insight
Millennium. As a result of this experience, the highest
level of health possible may be within your reach.
