Chiropractic care that is out of this world

At Precision Spinal Care, we are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility and technology, providing our patients with the highest quality chiropractic care available. Once you enter our office, you’ll understand why patients travel hours to visit us!

The Central Nervous System (CNS) controls and coordinates all functions of the human body. The CNS includes the Motor Nervous System, the Autonomic Nervous System, and the Sensory Nervous System. Most of our patients are surprised to find out that the sensory portion of the nervous system (what allows you to feel/sense pain) is only 10% of your nervous system. There’s another 90% that you can’t actually feel! This is why seemingly healthy individuals experience heart attacks. Inevitably, they probably weren’t that “healthy.” They just couldn’t detect the potential symptoms due to the different branches of the nervous system. So, let’s dive into how this all relates to the Insight Millennium. What is it? What should you know?

What is the Insight Millennium?

Insight Millenium technologyThe Insight Millennium, which is used in our office, is a tool that measures the motor and autonomic systems, the two systems that do not sense pain.

Basically, motor nerves control the movement of muscles and posture. The Surface Electromyography (sEMG) scans from the Insight Millennium can show disturbances to the motor system. This sEMG determines the function of your motor nerves by measuring the electrical current in your muscle tissue. Why is this important? Well, the vertebrae in the spine rely on the muscles moving properly. This gives way to optimal nervous system function and helps avoid interference.

In fact, spinal misalignments can disrupt the nervous system function and cause an abnormal amount of electrical current to occur in the muscles. This can lead to weakened muscles, imbalances, fatigue, tension, and further misalignments in the spine. However, we can detect these misalignments easily through sEMG and the electric currents present in the muscle.

Additionally, the autonomic nerves, that control the immune system, organs, and glands, can be measured via temperature differences. Normal body temperature is 98.6ºF. This means that the left and right sides of the spine should produce this temperature reading. When there is a disturbance in the nervous system, the body’s thermostat malfunctions. This gives an imbalanced temperature reading along the spine, which is measured with the Insight Millennium and indicates problems with the autonomic nerves and system.

Chiropractic Leadership Alliance Awarded Space Foundation Certification For The Insight Subluxation StationTM.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (January 1, 2006) – Spinal care technology developed for astronauts is now available for better chiropractic care. The Space Foundation, co-founded by NASA, announced today that the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance (CLA) has been awarded exclusive certification for the Insight Subluxation StationTM as a Certified Space Technology ™. The InsightTM technology 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 InsightTM to measure the effects of subluxations, and to help identify misalignments of the spine that cause nerve interference. Spinal misalignment disturbs the muscle’s regular nerve function, causing an abnormal amount of electrical flow to the muscles and creating other health problems. The Insight Subluxation StationTM measures the electrical flow and charts it using graphics that show the spine and specify precisely when chiropractors should adjust their patients, allowing for increased accuracy in diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes.

The Space Foundation is pleased to certify the Insight Subluxation StationTM, said Kevin Cook, director of brand management for the Space Foundation. The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance promotes better health by equipping the professional with the best technology for patient assessment.

The InsightTM uses technology developed for NASA to measure the effects of space on the spines of space shuttle astronauts. CLA continued the development of the system into the commercially available model available for chiropractic care and has been marketing the technology since 1988. The system measures skin temperature differentials and the sensitivity of paraspinal tissues and assesses range-of-motion, heart rate variability, and the amount of tension of paraspinal muscle activity to create the visual images used by chiropractors and their patients.

We are extremely excited to have been awarded the Space Foundation’s certification, states CLA Chief Executive Officer Dr. Patrick Gentempo. Increasing the credibility of chiropractic practice with a technology relevant to today’s world will help bring better health to millions of people worldwide.

CLA is pleased to be on the cutting edge of emerging technology, said Dr. Christopher Kent, CLA Co-founder. We are committed to providing chiropractors and their patients with scientifically sound technology. This will lead to improved clinical outcomes.

Since the dawn of the space era, the world’s best engineers at NASA have been developing advanced technologies that fuel America’s efforts in space and also result in a number of earthly applications. The Space Certification Program, managed by the Space Foundation, provides official recognition for qualified products and services incorporating those space technologies.
