INSiGHT™ SCANNING TECHNOLOGIES

What’s your COREscore™?

At Santé Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, we offer a high-tech COREscore™ assessment with our INSiGHT neuroTECH™technology. This advanced chiropractic technology delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension on your neuro-musculoskeletal system. 

Three different technologies give us an objective assessment:

Surface EMG

Surface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Spinal misalignments disturb the function of the spine and the nervous system. This can produce too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles. We use this highly-accurate, non-invasive scan to document your progress. It gives a more accurate evaluation of function than just relying on one’s symptoms.

A chiropractor thinks of energy expenditure and exhaustion when interpreting sEMG. It can be used to identify regional muscle activity but it is far more practical to use it to identify the exhaustive nature of being chronically out of spinal alignment. The term dysponesis is used to describe this inefficient energy usage. Motor neural measurements are an essential component in evaluating neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction.

Thermal Scan

This technology measures temperature. When there are disturbances to the nervous system along the spine, there are often temperature differences from side to side. This is due to inflammation and changes in blood flow. Our thermal scan is non-invasive and reveals the condition of the autonomic nervous system. 

Asymmetrical thermal control in the paraspinal region is a remarkable window into the regulation of end organs, blood vessels and glands. The sympathetic motor system can be viewed as it regulates vasoconstriction and vasodilation. A shift in sympathetic balance alters thermal regulation, emphasizing the connection between spinal care and whole-body health care. 

Heart Rate Variability

While sitting quietly in a room with your hand on a platform-style sensor, this technology accurately measures your heart rate over 3 minutes. HRV measures the amount of reserve that a person has to deal with the stressors in their lives. The balance between the divisions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS): the Sympathetic (S) and Parasympathetic (PS) must be maintained within a reasonable range or a fatiguing of the neurological response will occur

HRV is the gold standard for determining adaptability. When interpreted by a chiropractor the level of adaptability relates to the amount of vital reserve a patient can rely upon to stay well. It helps determine how chronic stress that has been accumulating over time is affecting immune responsiveness, degree of fatigue, level of recovery, overall energy and general vitality. Essentially, we are testing your heart rate to see if your daily stress loads are affecting your ability to cope.

The COREscore ™

The data from these tests are put together and then complex calculations are made to create your Core Score™. Because your care is based on the function of your nervous system, not how you feel, this technology is the focal point of our practice.

Your COREscore™ is based on a scale from 0  to 100. The higher the number, the better your brain-body communication. Your score will tell us how much interference is in your communication and will help guide us to uncover the strategies needed to improve your score.
