Subluxation Station

What is the Subluxation Station?

A computerized, non-invasive and painless test consisting of thermal, surface electromyography (SEMG) and heart rate variability (HRV).

Why should I get a scan of my nervous system?

The benefits of these scans are to detect and pinpoint abnormal function which cannot be detected on X-rays and are generally not felt in the form of pain until the damage is severe, much like a heart attack. The scans will show if there is any Subluxation (Stress) on your nervous system and how it is affecting your organs, glands, muscles and energy levels.

How will this test benefit me?

These computerized scans will let you know if a Chiropractor can help you.

Do the computerized scans hurt?

Absolutely not. These tests do not utilize any needles, electric shock, or heat. The Patient just feels someone touching their spine. Even children can be scanned.

Thermal Scan

The scanner will measure the temperature of each side of your spine. Your skin temperature, along with other bodily functions such as heart rate, breathing, organ function, and much more is autonomously controlled by the autonomic nervous system which is the part of the body that you don’t have to think about. Studies at Johns Hopkins University show that the body temperature on the left & right sides of the spine should be the same. A difference of body temperature on the right or left sides of your spine indicates stress on your autonomic nerves (Subluxation). The test enables us to determine what organs may be affected and the severity of the stress.

Surface Electromyography (SEMG)

SEMG will measure how your motor nerves are working. This is the part of the nervous system which controls muscles and movements. The more your muscles contract, the more electrical activity is produced. We are able to measure the amount of muscle spasms or weakness which may indicate stress to your nervous system caused by Subluxation.

Muscle Balance (Symmetry)

Disturbances in nervous system function will cause an abnormal amount of flow to the muscles on either side of the spine. As a result of this disturbance, the muscles can become weaker, tighter, or fatigued. This is measured through the SEMG.

Chiropractic Care is now Rocket Science!

Drs. Chris and Jen have joined a growing number of high tech Chiropractic Doctors that have upgraded their level of care to better assess the health and well being of their community. People can now be examined by the Insight Subluxation Station, a non-invasive technology which is a neuro-spinal screening and evaluation system originally designed to measure changes in the spinal muscles or astronauts caused by space flight. It is painless, economical and only takes minutes.

Family Tree Chiropractic uses the Insight technology to help measure subluxations, which is a nerve interference along the spine. This nerve interference disturbs the muscles regular nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical flow to the muscles and create other health problems. The Insight Subluxation Station measures the electrical flow and charts it, using graphics that show the spine. This helps specify precisely when Chiropractors should adjust their patients, allowing for increased accuracy in diagnosis, treatment and outcomes.
