OUR STATE-OF- THE-ART TECHNOLOGY
WILL OBJECTIVELY HELP US...

  • DETECT AREAS OF NERVE DISTURBANCE
  • DOCUMENT AND MONITOR YOUR RESULTS
  • DELIVER THE APPROPRIATE CHIROPRACTIC CARE


Subluxation (misalignment):

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.




Four important factors to consider before the tests are administered:

1. Do the Insight Millennium tests hurt?
Absolutely not. The tests do not utilize any needles, electrical shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important information from your Central Nervous System.




2. Why does the chiropractor administer these tests?
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 three standard tests will measure:
1) SEMG - the amount of electrical current in the muscles,
2) Thermography - skin temperature along the spine, and
3) Inclinometry - range of movement of the spine.





3. Why is it important to monitor the results?
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. 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.

4. How will this test benefit me?
For years, a major concern of the public has been, "Why do I have to keep coming back when Iím pain-free?" or "How do I know if Iím 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.
