Dr. Katy and staff at Perry Family Chiropractic, utilize innovative chiropractic technology to measure the effect of stress in your life and are CLA INSiGHT tm  Certified!

What does the Subluxation Station consist of?

It is a computerized, non-invasive and painless test consisting of thermal scanner surface electromyology  (SEMG) and the pulse wave profiler.

Why should I get my nervous system scanned?

​These scans are beneficial in that they recognize abnormal function.  X-ray does not pick up on this atypical function.  Any subluxation (stress) on your nervous system will be identified on the scan.  The scan will show how the subluxation is affecting your organs, glands, muscles, and energy level.

How will I benefit?

The subluxation station will give you a picture of how chiropractic can help you.

Will the scan hurt?

No it will not.  The patient will only feel the instrument touching their skin.  These scans are safe for pregnant women, children, and infants.

Thermal Scan:

The temperature radiating off of both sides of your spine will be measured.  The autonomic nervous is in control of your skin temperature.  The autonomic nervous system controls things like breathing, heart rate, and digestion.  These are all functions we don't have to think about.  Research, conducted at Johns Hopkins University, shows that the body temperature on the left and right sides of your spine should be equal.  Variations in body temperature from one side of your spine to the other signifies stress on your autonomic nerves (Subluxation).  Recognizing the level of stress allows us to verify what organs may be affected.

Surface Electromyograph (SEMG):

SEMG determines the function of your motor nerves.  Muscles and movement are controlled by this portion of the nervous system.  More electrical activity recognized the more your muscles contract.  The amount of muscle spasms, weakness, or fatigue will be measured and this will indicate the amount of stress put on your nervous system.  This stress is caused by subluxation.  Too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles can cause postural imbalances.

Each color represents differing amounts of nervous system disturbance.

​Pulse Wave Profiler:

Dr. Katy is part of an increasing number of high tech chiropractic doctors who have super charged their level of care to improve patient assessment and health.  You have the opportunity to have your nervous system examined by the INSiGHT Subluxation Station TM.  This technology is non-invasive neuro-spinal screening originally designed to measure changes in the spinal muscles of astronauts as a result of space flight.  The scan only takes minutes and is a painless and economical way to assess the function of your nervous system.

Dr. Katy utilizes the INSiGHT TM technology to assist in measuring nerve interference along the spine (subluxation).  Nerve interference interrupts normal nerve function of muscles in which can further health problems.  The INSiGHT Subluxation Station TM measures the nerve interference and charts it.  This technology helps identify accurately when and where you need adjusted, allowing for increased precision in diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes.

The INSiGHT TM technology has received the highly regarded, exclusive recognition of a Certified Space Technology TM from The Space Foundation, in cooperation of NASA.

The INSiGHT Pulse Wave Profiler allows us to monitor the autonomic nervous system in different ways by collecting Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data.  This is a unique, extremely exciting, and powerful tool for the chiropractor.  Heart Rate Variability is the beat to beat variation in heart rate.  The natural rise and fall of heart rate is cause by several physiologic phenomena, including breathing and autonomic nervous system (ANS) modulates heart rate in the baseline or resting state.  Published research has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments have favorable effects on the HRV parameters.  Now you can bring this important fact to light for patients right in your office.  This technology has perfected the clinical application of reliable HRV measurements for chiropractic applications.  For the first time, instead of measuring parameters on or around the spine, we are able to directly measure the effect of chiropractic care on the function of a vital organ.  This significant "proof point" catalyzes a patient's understanding of the whole body health benefits of chiropractic care.
