Insight Subluxation Station

A powerful tool for analyzing your nervous system

At Glenbourne Chiropractic Clinic the Doctor will utilize the Insight Millennium Subluxation Station to analyze the integrity of your nervous system. The Insight is the only technology of its kind certified by the U.S. Space Foundation and the only device of its kind to be registered with the FDA and Health Canada as a Class II Medical Device. Scans with the Insight are non-invasive and will be performed as part of your initial consultation and examination and at regular intervals during re-evaluations. Your Chiropractor may also suggest that a scan with the Insight be performed if you have had a new injury, new complaint or a motor vehicle accident.

A scan with the Insight Subluxation Station is composed of three parts:

Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP)

The PWP collects information about heart rate variability. Heart rate variability is the beat-to-beat variation in heart rate. This natural rise and fall in heart rate is a normal phenomenon and is regulated by autonomic nervous system activity. By measuring heart rate variability, we can get a window into how the autonomic nervous system modulates your heart rate in a resting state. The autonomic nervous system is the portion of your nervous system that controls the organs, blood vessels and glands. Heart rate variability is a reflection of how well you are adapting to stress in your environment and how well balanced you autonomic nervous system is. Lowered heart rate variability is associated with aging, obesity and heart disease. Published research has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments have favorable effects on heart rate variability.

Thermal Scanner

The Insight Thermal Scanner assesses autonomic nervous system function by measuring differences in skin temperature along either side of your spine. Areas of abnormal nervous system function will appear on the scan as an increase in skin temperature. By analyzing these areas of increased skin temperature, the Chiropractor can make more accurate recommendations about your treatment plan needs. The thermal scan is also a quick, easy, and effective way to check children and the functioning of their nervous system.

Surface Electromyography (sEMG)

The Insight sEMG is similar to the technology used in EKG machines. One primary difference is that the Insight sensors are 1,000 times more sensitive, since the paraspinal muscles (the postural and stabilizing muscles along your spine) generate less electrical activity than heart muscle. The electrical signal changes measured by the sEMG show the Chiropractor how the motor portion of your nervous system is functioning and therefore, can quantify the muscular changes in individual spinal segments. When you are over stressed the motor system will compensate and your body will lose efficiency. Patterns of muscle function around your spine will help determine your treatment plan. Surface EMG is a powerful tool for tracking outcome assessment results from chiropractic care.

  • After eight treatments, my hip pain was much better and continued to improve to the point, I am pain free. Thank you and sorry I was skeptical, I am now a believer!

  • When I first came here, I was steps away from a wheelchair. Dr. Fox fixed my back and now I can do they things I like to do. He showed me and my family healthy eating and healthy lifestyle. All the staff at Glenbourne Chiro are awesome!

  • After I received a shot in my neck from the doctor I still had pain so I went to my chiropractor, before long my neck was moving like before. NO PILLS NECESSARY. So there are 2 things I learned over the past one and a half years: pay your taxes, and maintain your chiropractic.

  • When I would travel by air my ears felts like they were going to explode, they would bleed and I wouldn't be able to hear for days. We recently returned from the Dominican and to my amazement I had no pain in my ears and no bleeding. It was a vacation well enjoyed. Thank you Dr. Fox.

  • I am pleased to say Dr. Fox has managed to get my back functioning in a more efficient manner with much less pain. Life is less painful and a lot more pleasant than nine months ago.

  • Dr. Fox, Dr. Peddle and their staff have helped me so much that as a patient I appreciate them more than they could ever appreciate me. I know with my whole being that if I did not have this wonderful support team, I would be in much worse shape than I am.

  • If there is anything I would change, I would have investigated Chiropractic sooner. Do yourself a favor and contact the folks at Glenbourne Chiropractic Clinic, they are truly interested in your well-being. For us, they have become part of our extended family.

  • I had issues with my sciatic nerve for years, through being adjusted I am finding that I am achieving the best results I have had in years!

  • I've found that since starting treatment at Glenbourne over a year ago, any aches and pains are non-existent. The passion and commitment with which Dr. Fox approaches each patient is contagious.

  • I no longer have pain, I continue to have regular maintenance treatments and I feel great!

  • It took Dr. Fox seconds to diagnose my neck problem and a confirming x-ray indicated serious neck issues. Within 6-9 months following a rigorous adjustment, exercise, stretching and massage program, I gained back virtually all of the range of motion in my arms and became pain free.
