Why We Use State-of-the-Art Scans?

In today’s rapidly evolving healthcare sector, access to state-of-the-art technology is pivotal in ensuring optimal patient care.

The Insight Subluxation Station gives us the power to identify potential issues or irregularities in your spine, such as misalignments (subluxations), which could affect your overall well-being. This technology, developed by Johns Hopkins University, enables us to get to the root cause of your health concerns which is nervous system disturbance. This comprehensive scan learning platform paves the way for highly personalized back care planning and treatment.

What is the Insight Subluxation Station?

The Insight Subluxation Station is a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool specifically designed for chiropractic practitioners. It uses advanced scanning technology to perform detailed nervous system assessments and spinal health. The objective is to detect any interference, pain or abnormalities impacting a person’s life and well-being.

How Does the Insight Subluxation Station Work to Detect Nervous System Disturbance?

During your initial visit to our chiropractic clinic in Littleton, CO, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your spinal health using the Insight technology. This advanced system performs an in-depth scan of your nervous system, detecting hidden stress and tension patterns that could impact your overall wellness.

The scanning measures:

  1. Thermal Scan: This test helps evaluate the function of the autonomic nerves by measuring skin temperature along the spine. The autonomic nervous system controls our body’s automatic functions like heartbeat, blood pressure, and digestion. Abnormal temperature distributions can indicate stress or dysfunction in the nervous system and organ function.

  2. Surface Electromyography (sEMG): This test assesses the muscles regular nerve function, which control the spinal muscles and are an integral part of our nervous system. It measures the amount of electrical activity your muscles release when they are spasming, which is a way to see how your motor nerves work. Surface EMG is a much less invasive way to measure the electrical flow of the muscles on the left and right sides of the spine.

  3. Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP): The Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP) is a sophisticated instrument that measures your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) – a critical indicator of your body’s ability to adapt to environmental changes and stress. This is a powerful tool to measure your autonomic nervous system and it’s overall ability to adapt to the environment. It does this by looking at the timing of your pulse, and determining the balance and tension within your nervous system.

The Insight scanning process is non-invasive and painless, providing us with a wealth of invaluable information that pinpoint abnormal function for your personalized treatment plan. This initial scan is a crucial first step in your chiropractic care journey, setting the foundation for subsequent monitoring and treatment.

Comparing Your Nervous System with Initial Scan vs. Follow-Up Scans

One of the significant benefits of the Insight technology is its ability to monitor changes over time. Following your initial scan, we schedule regular follow-up scans to track the progress and effectiveness of your treatment.

We can accurately gauge your response to our care by comparing the objective findings in these follow-up scans with your baseline scan. This ongoing monitoring allows us to adapt and adjust your treatment plan as necessary, ensuring you always receive the most beneficial and effective care possible.

What is CoreScore™?

The CoreScore™ is a comprehensive, easy-to-understand numerical value that encapsulates the overall wellbeing of your spine and nervous system. It is based on the data collected from three critical tests conducted by the Insight Subluxation Station:

  • The thermal scan

  • The Surface Electromyography (sEMG)

  • The Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP) 

Each test assesses different aspects of your nervous system function, giving your chiropractor a holistic picture of your spinal fitness and increased accuracy in your treatment plan.

Interpreting the CoreScore™

The CoreScore™ ranges from 0 to 100. A perfect CoreScore of 100 signifies an optimal spinal and neurological state, implying that any of the three tests detect no significant issues. Conversely, a lower CoreScore suggests the presence of spinal misalignments or imbalances in your nervous system function.

It’s important to note that the CoreScore isn’t merely a reflection of your current health status—it also provides you and your doctors with valuable insight into your potential risks. For example, a consistently low CoreScore may indicate an increased risk of future problems related to your spine or nervous system.

Using the CoreScore™ in Your Chiropractic Care

The primary goal of chiropractic care is to help you achieve and maintain optimal spinal and neurological vitality, and your CoreScore is a crucial indicator of your progress toward this goal. By tracking changes in your CoreScore over time, we can assess the effectiveness of your treatment plan and adjust it as necessary to ensure that you’re constantly receiving the most beneficial and effective care.

Moreover, the CoreScore makes it easy for you to get an comprehensive picture and understand your own overall wellness. Instead of sorting through complex medical data, you get a single number that gives you a snapshot of your spinal and nervous system fitness. This empowers you to take an active role in your healthcare, making informed decisions based on a clear understanding of where you are currently.
