Insight Subluxation Station

Insight_Logo.JPGNew_Image.JPG

Dr. Kevin Walsh utilizes the Insight Discovery Subluxation Station TM , a State-of-the-Art Five Technology Examination ceritifed by the Space Foundation in cooperation with NASA originally designed to measure changes in the spinal muscles of astronauts.  The Technology has been adapted for the Chiropractic profession to provide a painless and non-invasive examination that will help us characterize abnormal activity surrounded your spine.  This activity can be associated with a Subluxation which could lead to other health issues beyond your typical physical complaints.

The Insight Discovery Subluxation Station includes the following Five Examinations:

Thermography - The Thermal Scan is used to assess the part of your nervous system that helps to control your organs, glands, and blood vessels, the autonomic system. The instrument does this by precisely measuring differences in temperature along the spine. Since proper function of your organs, glands, and blood vessels is essential to healing and living well, this test gives your doctor a 'snapshot' of how this portion of your nervous system is working and how it is responding to care.

Surface and Dynamic EMG -  The Surface EMG exam evaluates the function of the muscles that support your spine. These muscles are controlled by nerves. This test shows the pattern of how energy is distributed through these muscles. The exam helps identify areas and patterns of abnormal tension and stress. By precisely measuring muscle activity, your progress can be followed as your care progresses.

Digital ROM - The Range of Motion exam measures the amount of movement in regions of your spine. This exam identifies areas of restricted motion, and shows if one side moves better than the other. Your ranges of motion can also be compared to established normal values. This part of the exam helps your doctor find areas of altered spinal mechanics.

Heart Rate Variability - The HRV or Pulse Wave Profiler helps the doctor to determine your overall ability to adapt to the environment. It does this by looking at the timing of your pulse, and determining the balance and tone of your nervous system. This exam is known as heart rate variability. Proper balance and tone are associated with better adaptability and a healthy lifestyle. Low heart rate variability is associated with aging and poor heart health. Published research has shown that chiropractic adjustments have a beneficial effect on heart rate variability.

Algometry - If there was tenderness felt along your spine or if you were suffering from pain when you consulted the doctor, an Algometry (pain mapping) exam was performed to produce a comprehensive map of the pattern of pain along your spine. This test measures the sensitivity of various locations to pressure.

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy was the best choice I ever made! I had a quick and easy delivery and feel so much better this time than with my first child. My one-week old was adjusted by Dr. Walsh and I noticed a difference in nursing him and his overall state of being that very afternoon. I recommend Dr. Walsh to every pregnant person I know! It really does make a difference."
