Insight Millennium Subluxation Station
At Southern Family Chiropractic, we use state-of-the-art technology in assessing each practice member to get an exact location of the cause of their health conditions. The Space Foundation certified Insight Millennium Technology establishes a reliable, scientifically valid, quantitative, multidimensional, representation of the person’s condition – something never before possible. This is significant on many levels. It enables the Doctors and the team to analyze a person’s condition more accurately, communicate findings more effectively– while allowing both the Doctor and the practice member to track the effectiveness of their care at Southern Family Chiropractic.
The Science Behind Thermography
The Thermal Technology assesses autonomic nervous system function by measuring temperature differentials on the surface of the skin and has been in clinical use for over a century. The first thermal patent for healthcare use was applied for in 1924 by Dossa Evins. Later that year, B.J. Palmer started utilizing thermal technology to measure patient's nervous system response to chiropractic care. Thermography has long been acknowledged in the scientific community as being accurate and reproducible. In fact, there are over 5,000 references to thermography on Medline. The normative study used by the Insight is based on published scientific research done by John Hopkins University in 1988, in which a group of neurosurgeons used thermal scanning technology to determine temperature protocols and their relationship to sympathetic dysfunction. In the abstract from the article, it states "Thermal values can be used as a standard in assessment of sympathetic nerve dysfunction, and the degree of asymmetry is a quantifiable indicator of dysfunction."
