I’ve been having a lot of people ask me lately about the scans that we do in our office, so I figured I would shed some light on the subject since this is the main thing that sets up apart from physical therapists, massage therapists and most other chiropractors.

The scans that we do in the office are called Infared Thermography.  It measures the blood vessels just underneath the skin which are directly controlled by the nervous system.  So if there is an imbalance in the way your nerves are firing, it shows up on the scan as unbalanced. 

This is important because your body should constantly be adapting to the environment around it, and when we see that it’s stuck in a certain pattern of not adapting, that’s when we know that you need to be adjusted.  This is also why we don’t adjust every patient on every visit.  The less we have to adjust you, the better your nervous system is doing to adapting to the environment.

There is virtually no way to tell if there is an imbalance in your nervous system without using some type of objective device like this.  You cannot tell the nervous system is out of balance just by feeling the body. 

Because the nervous system controls EVERY single organ, tissue and cell in the body it is VITALLY important that you get your nervous system monitored.  We know from research as well as experience that when the nervous system gets balanced out the communication is restored from the brain down to the rest of the body.  The nerves getting turned on again is like a flood-gate opening.  Your body not only starts to heal the current injuries and problems but over time goes back and fixes old chronic ones as well. 

There is NO other system in the body like the nervous system and your body CANNOT do anything without it.  Upper Cervical Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to use this type of thermography and you don’t want anyone guessing when it comes to your body.
