Eat Well- Supplements (Metagenics, Pure Encapsulations, Standard Process)
At Queensbury Family Chiropractic we pride ourselves on being the most technologically advanced in the area. We use the latest, state-of-the-art health computer scanning system to obtain important information from your body. Our purpose for administrating these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the body which cannot be seen on x-rays.
Spinal care technology developed for astronauts is now available for better chiropractic care here on Earth. The Insight Subluxation Station is a neurospinal screening and evaluation system that uses surface electromyography (SEMG) technology originally designed to measure changes in the spinal muscles of astronauts.
Chiropractors use the Insight to help identify subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, by measuring muscle activity. Subluxations disturb the muscles' regular nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical flow to the muscle as well as other health challenges. The Insight Subluxation Station measures the electrical flow and charts it using graphics that show the spine and specify precisely how chiropractors should adjust their patients. Insight allows for increased accuracy in diagnosis and improved treatment.
The Insight uses technology developed for NASA to measure the effects of space on the spines of space shuttle astronauts. The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance (CLA) continued the development of the system into the commercially available model. The system measures skin temperature differentials and the sensitivity of paraspinal tissues and assesses range-of-motion, and heart rate variability to create visual images chiropractors can use to diagnose their patients and help bring better health to millions of people worldwide.
Deliver the appropriate chiropractic care
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.
