Advanced Technology to Measure the Impact of Stress
Dr. Antoinette is committed to promoting a drug-free approach in family healthcare while awakening the natural healing potential within each of our patients therefore we use the INSIGHT™ neuro-spinal scanning system to detect and monitor hidden tension within the spinal core. These damaging stress patterns, known as vertebral subluxations or subluxations, affect your spine and impact overall health and wellness.
What is the INSIGHT™?
The INSIGHT™ is a computerized, non-invasive & painless scanning test that can detect hidden tension and stress within the spine. The test consists of a thermal and surface electromyography (SEMG) scan.
Why do I need my Nervous System Scanned?
Your body is designed and programmed to heal itself, but when a subluxation occurs, your body can no longer properly do what it is programmed and designed to do. These scans provide an insight to possible abnormal functions within your body. Subluxations are a mostly silent process and symptoms like pain may not occur until after some initial damage has been done. These advanced sensing technologies will show if there is any Subluxation (stress) on your nervous system and how it is affecting your organs, glands, muscles & energy levels.
Health is not about how we ‘feel’ – health is about how we ‘function’.
The Thermal Scan measures the difference between temperatures on each side of your spine. Management of skin temperature is a complex function of the autonomic nervous system; the part of your nervous system that controls functions automatically. Such autonomic functions include breathing, organ function, blood flow, heart rate, and much more. Therefore, differences in spinal temperatures will indicate stress on your autonomic nervous system (subluxation). The test reveals where and how deeply this stress is affecting your health.
The SEMG scan evaluates your motor nerves. These nerves control muscle movements; so this test measures the energy used by the nervous system to produce proper movement and support of your spine. This SEMG test also measures muscle balance along either side of the spine. Areas of imbalance result in muscle weakness, tightness and or fatigue. Signals that are too strong or even too weak are identified and can indicate Subluxations which alter energy output and cause the body to work inefficiently.
Dr. Antoinette has joined other leading high tech chiropractors who use the INSIGHT™ Technology. This technology allows Dr. Antoinette to provide a reliable, accurate and scientifically valid objective assessment of our patient’s health. It also provides the ability to measure the wellness benefits of continued chiropractic care beyond symptomatic relief. “We are thrilled to be able to bring this breakthrough technology to our office and our patients.”
