Surface EMG at Abrankian Back & Neck Center

Insight Millennium Subluxation Station

As an assessment of nervous system function at Abrankian Back & Neck Center, this scan has two parts. Since only 10% of the nervous system carries pain sensation, pain is not an accurate indication of how much irritation or interference the nervous system is experiencing as a result of spinal dysfunction.

First Part of the Assessment

The first part of the assessment involves a thermal scan of the heat distribution along each side of the spine. Imbalance indicates dysfunction of the autonomic (or automatic) portion of the nervous system, since it controls the dilation of the blood vessels in the skin along with the function of the internal organs.

Second Part of the Assessment

By conducting an initial exam, before starting chiropractic treatment, and periodic follow up exams, the effectiveness of treatment can be properly monitored, and treatment modified accordingly to obtain the best possible results.
