INSIGHT™ Subluxation Station: At Springfield Family Chiropractic, we are proud to have the Insight Subluxation Station available as part of our initial chiropractic exam. The scanning technology has been certified by the Space Foundation to prove a reliable, scientifically valid, quantitative and multidimensional representation of patient well-being.
The INSIGHT™ system allows Dr. Dawn Wille and Dr. Ryan Wille to analyze each patient’s condition more accurately and communicate the findings more effectively. The detailed chiropractic reports provided by the system give us a building block to map a course of treatment and the progress of the patient during the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.
The neuroTHERMAL™ Scanner
The INSIGHT neuroTHERMAL™ Scanner is a rolling segmental thermal scanner that uses infrared sensors to take temperature readings. The equipment allows us to evaluate autonomic nerve function by measuring temperature differentials.
The scanner has an adjustable sensor array that provides Dr. Dawn Wille and Dr. Ryan Wille with the ability to take readings from any size spine, whether it be an infant, child or adult.
Static and Dynamic Surface Electromyograpy (sEMG)
The sEMG technology reads electrical activity in order to measure paraspinal tension similar to the use of electromyagraphy in EKG/heart rate measurement machines.
The electric current pattern is a crucial indication of how the body functions. If the muscles on each side of the spine are not in balance, the body is forced to compenstate, which takes energy. The alterations in the electrical activity can provide insight on the muscular changes linked to vertebral subluxations (misalignments of the spine). As such, we use the sEMG to establish a baseline for paraspinal electrical activity to monitor the progress and course of action for therapy provided.
The neuroPULSE™ helps chiropractors assess and monitor the impact of stress on patients through Heart Rate Variability (HRV) readings. NeuroPULSE™ readings give chiropractors a scientifically valid proof point to show patients exactly how chiropractic care, within the greater context of a healthy lifestyle, is supporting their heart and promoting their well-being. Chiropractors can also identify imbalances in the autonomous system and clearly document their progress over time.
What is HRV and how does it affect well-being?
HRV refers to the beat-to-beat variability of the heart, and provides incredible insight into autonomic nervous system function. Though it may seem counterintuitive, a higher HRV is actually a good thing: it means that there is a greater variability in the time between heart beats so this organ is better able to respond to stress, sickness or physical activity. The more adaptable a patient’s heart, the less damage any stress-related spikes will be for overall health and well-being. With the neuroPULSE™, chiropractors can establish a baseline HRV for each patient. This provides a concrete starting point to track a patient’s progress as they work toward wellness.
