We use CLA INSIGHT™ Scanning Technology
CLA INSIGHT™ Technology scans measure our patients’ nervous system adaptability and stress levels.
The complexities of the functioning nervous system are immense and remarkable. The sensory system allows the body to interpret itself in its environment while the motor and autonomic systems allow for movement, support and regulation while, all the time, learning how to adapt more efficiently. In the chiropractic lexicon, we can measure these variables and compare them to a well adapted, well-adjusted population and then describe the patient as being subluxated, if they exhibit these persistent inefficiencies. Over time, vertebral subluxations emerge as part of the body’s inability to adapt successfully and we can quantify what areas of the spine and spinal nerves are subluxated and to what extent these subluxations have affected the internal processing. It’s because of this degree of complexity and ongoing adaptability that technology becomes an invaluable asset for observing where change is happening and how each patient is coping.
When we observe patients undergoing chiropractic care, an incredible array of changes occur at the neurofunctional level.
- The overall balance and capacity of their autonomic nervous system improves.
- They spend much less motor-neural activity to maintain their postures.
- They move with greater freedom and efficiency.
- The organs and glands operate with greater control when the regional autonomic nerve centers function more efficiently.
- They learn, think and socialize at an accelerated pace as they process their environment more completely and with greater ease.
To look through one lens of the nervous system is important but gaining a perspective of the how the adaptive, postural and regulatory nervous system combine to keep a human at their optimal best, is why chiropractic exists! Completing a thorough neurofunctional and structural examination gives such insight into how a patient will succeed under our care.
So, how is neurofunctional testing streamlined in today’s busy practice environment? Simple. Data from three INSiGHT instruments can instantly create a thorough picture of the patient’s neural efficiencies.
- It begins with an Heart Rate Variability (HRV) analysis to look at the overall balance and capacity of the ANS.
- This is followed by a surface EMG scan that identifies the areas of wasted postural energy; and finally
- Thermographic scanning looks deeper into the spinal nerve centers that regulate the end organs and glands.
All of these non-invasive tests collect their data and compare the results to the ideal, well-adjusted patient data bases. Remember, adaptability directly correlates to the degree and ease of central neural function. In only a few minutes, an overview of the patient’s neural functional, postural and regulatory status can be measured and graphed. These essential images and scores confirm, to both the clinician and patient, how vertebral subluxations are involved so that an objective care plan can be prepared and progress tracked at all stages.
All of our scans are safe for children and pregnant women.
