At Well Family Chiropractic, we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology that scans your spine and delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension to your nervous system. The scans are completely painless and perfectly safe on children – even infants. These three different technologies give us (and you) an objective assessment
Heart Rate Variability
Heart Rate Variability is the beat-to-beat variation in heart rate. This natural rise and fall of heart rate is caused by several physiologic phenomena, including breathing and autonomic nervous system activity. Chiropractic doctors use HRV to get a window into how the autonomic nervous system (ANS) modulates heart rate. Published research has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments have favorable effects on HRV parameters.
The thermal scan measures temperature. When there are disturbances to your 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 your autonomic nervous system controlling your organs, glands and circulatory system. This can be performed on all patients, babies and pregnant women included.
Surface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Subluxations disturb the function of 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’s more accurate than how you feel.
