At ABC Family Chiropractic and Wellness, we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology that scans your spine and delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension to your nervous system. The scan mentioned in the video is called the Subluxation Station. Dr. Mark Potter will perform the scans for you. Our state of the art scan technology will help us to detect areas of nerve disturbance, document and monitor your results, and deliver the appropriate chiropractic care. Most common scans performed are thermal scan and surface electromyography (SEMG scan). Scans are non-invasive and take a few minutes. The scan puts nothing into your body. They only take readings from your body. Our purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the spine which can not be seen on x-ray. Abnormal spinal function causes abnormal Nervous System disturbance. Thermography will measure the skin temperature along side the spine. SEMG will measure the amount of electrical current in the muscles.

Surface EMG

Surface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Subluxations disturb the function of the nervous system. This can produce too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles. We use this highly-accurate, non-invasive scan to document your progress. It’s more accurate than how you feel.

Thermal Scan

As you’d expect, this measures temperature. When there are disturbances to your nervous system along the spine, there are often temperature differences from side to side. This is due to inflammation and changes in blood flow. Our thermal scan is non-invasive and reveals the condition of your autonomic nervous system controlling your organs, glands and circulatory system.

What to Expect

After gowning, we’ll have you sit still for a moment or two. Then, starting at the base of your skull, we’ll run two probes down your back. Think of these as miniature radio antennas listening for a distant station. That’s it. The computer does the rest!

At your report, you’ll get to see the computerized printout and learn what it means. Because your care is based on the condition of your nervous system, not how you feel, this technology is the focal point of our practice.
