Our state-of-the-art Insight Millennium Scan technology will objectively help us…
- Detect areas of nerve disturbance and subluxations*
- Document and monitor your results
- Deliver the appropriate chiropractic care
*A subluxation is a problem in the spine where an abnormal position/movement of the vertebrae disturbs communication within the Central Nervous System causing a disturbance in the body.
Common Questions Regarding the Insight Millennium Scan
1. Do the scans hurt?
Absolutely not. The scans do not utilize any needles, electrical shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important information from your Central Nervous System.
2. Why do we administer these tests?
Our purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the spine which cannot be seen on an X-ray. Abnormal spinal function can cause abnormal Nervous System disturbance. The three standard tests will measure: 1) SEMG-the amount of electrical current in the muscles, 2) Thermography-the skin temperature along the spine and 3) Inclinometry-the range of movement of the spine.
3. Why is it important to monitor the results?
We want the best results for our patients like yourself. We can easily monitor your changes through periodic progress exams. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure (the weight of a dime!) can disturb the communication of the Nervous System, whether or not symptoms are present. By using the Insight Millennium scanner, we are able to measure the results after any pressure is removed. Monitoring how your spine moves is key to improving your health and well-being.
4. How will this test benefit me?
For years, a major concern of the public has been, “Why do I have to keep coming back when I’m pain free?” or “How do I know if I’m getting the proper amount of adjustments?” Now you are able to actually see the changes, and it will be easier to understand the amount and type of care you are receiving. Because of this technology, we can provide a “tailor-made” program to meet your specific health needs.

This is a scan sequence from an actual patient. This particular sequence is measuring the electrical current running through the muscles along the spine and the colors of the bars indicate whether those levels are off the charts (black) to neutral (white). It’s easy to see the improvement from the first scan (bottom right) to the most recent one performed (upper left).
