Insight Scanning in Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors specialize in locating the root cause of pain and other symptoms. Typically, this comes from feeling along the full musculoskeletal system to identify subluxations and other issues. While this method has been in use for many years, Insight scanning is helping chiropractors like Dr. Keough and Dr. Mashinter at Keough Chiropractic in St. Charles, MO, provide even more effective treatment.

What Is Insight Scanning?
Insight scanning is a type of technology that allows chiropractors to simply scan the body to pinpoint a variety of issues. It’s computerized and requires no needles or other painful processes. It also doesn’t expose you to any type of heat, radiation, or other dangerous elements.
What Does It Scan and Detect?
One part of the technology involves a thermal scan. This determines the temperature on the sides of your spine. It is beneficial because elevated temperatures can signify issues within the nervous system.
The SEMG or Surface Electromyograph portion of the scan gives insight into how well your nerves are functioning. Abnormal function can provide vital information as to where a subluxation might be present.
The scan also takes a look at muscle balance or symmetry. If there is lower blood flow to an area of muscles, it typically shows an issue within the nervous system and helps pinpoint areas to be addressed.
Additionally, Insight scanning provides Heart Rate Variability testing or HRV. It provides invaluable information on how stress, subluxations, and more are impacting your nervous system.
Through these four areas, chiropractors can gain incredible amounts of information that allow them to develop a highly personalized and precise approach to pain relief, health, and wellness. It allows patients to receive treatment methods that actually reach down to the core of the issue, recover faster, and live a healthier, pain-free life.
