Insight Millennium Subluxation Station


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 and 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 do we 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?
We want the best results for our patients like yourself. We 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 we 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 I’m pain free?" or "How do I know if I’m 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, we can provide a "tailor-made" program to meet your specific health needs.

SEMG SCAN
Measures Electrical Current of the Muscles

Surface Electromyography (SEMG Scan)

Your muscles are controlled by nerves. The SEMG measures how well the motor nerves are working by reading the amount of current found in the muscles. Subluxations (misalignments) disturb the function of the nerve causing an abnormal amount of electrical current flowing to your muscles (indicated by colors and/or abnormal patterns).

Muscle Balance (Symmetry)

Muscle Balance is extremely important because the vertebrae in the spine depend on the muscles to move properly. If one or more vertebrae are out of their normal position, it disturbs nerve function. This disturbance creates muscle imbalance caused by an abnormal amount of electrical current in the muscles on either side of the spine. As a result of this disturbance, the muscles can become weaker or stronger, tighter, or fatigued. The abnormal muscle pattern on the scan reveals an increased amount of tension/pull on one side compared to the other. (Similar to a Tug-of-War).

Thermal Scan
Measures Temperature Differences

Initial Scan

Re-Scan

Temperature Differences (Thermal Scan)

If your body temperature is 98.6 degrees, then the left and right sides of your spine should also be the same temperature. Your skin is the largest organ of the body and the blood vessels under the skin work as the body’s thermostat. (They expand to release heat and contract to retain heat controlling the body’s temperature.) When the communication between the Nervous System and the blood vessels is disturbed, it causes the body’s thermostat to malfunction producing an imbalanced temperature reading along the spine. These blood vessels are controlled by the same part of the Central Nervous System that runs your organs and glands, known as the autonomic system. This thermal scan provides us with information to monitor the autonomic system for proper function.

We welcome your questions, so please call to speak to Jennifer, Dr. Kelly or Dr. Lain and we will be more than happy to assist you. Also, feel free to schedule complimentary scans for yourself and/or your family. 207-854-2001
