New Technology: Insight Millennium

Second Generation Subluxation Station

Nelson Chiropractic Health Center is proud to announce the newest technological addition to their practice. Insight Millennium is a state-of-the-art subluxation station that will objectively help us:

  • detect areas of nerve disturbance along your spine,
  • document and monitor your results as you are treated,
  • and deliver appropriate and custom chiropractic care.


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.

Why does the chiropractor administer these tests?

Our purpose for administering these test 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 standard tests will measure:

  1. SEMG - the amount of electrical current in the muscles
  2. Thermography - skin temperature along the spine.

Why is it important to monitor the results?

Nelson Chiropractic Health Center wants the best results for patients like yourself. They can easily monitor your changes through periodic progress exams. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure can disturb the communication of the Nervous System weather or not symptoms are present. How can the chiropractor 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.

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, Nelson Chiropractic Health Center can provide a "tailor-made" program to meet your specific health needs.

Motor Nerves Surface Electromyography (SEMG Scan)

Surface Electromyography (SEMG Scan)

Your muscles are controlled by nerves. The SEMG measures how well the motor nerves are working by reading the amount of current found in the muscles. Subluxations (misalignments) disturb the function of the nerve causing an abnormal amount of electrical current flowing to your muscles (indicated by colors and/or abnormal patterns.)

Muscle Balance Symmetry


Muscle Balance is extremely important because the vertebrae in the spine depend on the muscles to move properly. If one or more vertebrae are out of their normal position, it disturbs nerve function. This disturbance creates muscle imbalance caused by an abnormal amount of electrical current in the muscles on either side of the spine. As a result of this disturbance, the muscles can become weaker or stronger, tighter or fatigued. The abnormal muscle pattern on the scan reveals an increased amount of tension/pull on one side compared to the other (similar to a Tug-of-War).

Temperature Differences Thermal Scan


If your body temperature is 98.6 degrees, then the left and right sides of your spine should also be the same temperature. Your skin is the largest organ of the body and the blood vessels under the skin work as the body's thermostat. (They expand to release heat and contract to retain heat controlling the body's temperature.)

When the communication between the Nervous System and the blood vessels is disturbed, it causes the body's thermostat to malfunction producing an imbalanced temperature reading along the spine. These blood vessels are controlled by the same part of the Central Nervous System that runs your organs and glands, known as the autonomic system. This thermal scan provides us with information to monitor the autonomic system for proper function.

When the range of motion is restricted, your ability to move is limited and causes tress on the parts involved l this begins a decaying process. This process not only affects the problem areas, but left uncorrected will negatively affect the areas above and below it (i.e. domino effect). This process is similar to your vehicle's front end when out of alignment, it limits proper movement of the tires, causing uneven wear and tear on certain areas.

To summarize, your body can be malfunctioning for months, even years, before you experience any symptoms. Since symptoms are always the last to show and first to go, it is important to monitor the function of your Nervous System which is why Nelson Chiropractic Health Center utilizes the Insight Millennium. As a result of this experience, the highest level of health possible may be within your reach.
