Instrumentation and X-ray
Instrumentation is absolutely a necessity for identifying the vertebral subluxation complex with any accuracy. As we have explained, the result of the vertebral subluxation is the altered nerve. Thus, this is the main insult of the subluxation. It, therefore, stands to reason that in order to identify it, you must find it through the nervous system.
The instrument called the ECS (electrical conductance scanner) measures the galvanic skin response (water density) supraspinally and paraspinal in order to detect increased sympathetic nerve activity at separate vertebral levels through the output of sweat glands, oil glands, and blood vessel dilation/constriction. These glands and vessels are segmentally innervated and share a connection with the vertebral joint and tissues via interneurons of the intermedio-lateral horn of the spinal cord.
The ECS is the most efficient and specific method of segmental examination of vertebral subluxation induced nerve dysfunction. It is far more specific than nerve conduction velocity tests (very painful) or surface EMG, and far more sensitive than thermal scans.
Doctors who utilize specialized instrumentation in their chiropractic examination, thereby, provide care that is more efficacious than those doctors who do not.
From Uncertainty to Insight
Uncertainty has long been a challenge for chiropractors. They promise patients better health through a better functioning nervous system.
But for many years there was no technology that could deliver compelling, objective measurements to demonstrate the “before and after” of chiropractic adjustments. This meant that chiropractors, or their patients, could never be absolutely sure the promise of chiropractic was actually being realized.
Then Came Insight
Harnessing the power of up to five proven technologies, the Insight Subluxation Station enables chiropractors to develop a comprehensive picture of a patient’s neurospinal health by consistently and reliably measuring key physiological parameters. Your chiropractor is then able to identify problems with confidence on the initial exam, and with re-exams, accurately measure outcomes to evaluate progress and guide further care. The result has been nothing short of a revolution. The technology is now being taught and used at many leading chiropractic colleges around the world. Insight technology is also being used in the locker rooms of many famous sports teams including the Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, and Baltimore Ravens.
Perhaps most impressively, the Insight has been used in NASA’s space program and been Space Certified by the Space Foundation — a non-profit organization that works in cooperation with NASA. It is the only technology of its kind to receive this certification. Using this advanced technology, thousands of chiropractors have transformed their traditional status-quo practices into vibrant, thriving, successful patient treatment facilities that are driven, not by insurance claims, but by loyal patients who fully value the positive impact ongoing chiropractic care has on the quality of their lives and the lives of their family members.
