Subluxation Station

At Hanson Family Chiropractic, 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 scans are completely painless and perfectly safe on children – even infants. Three different technologies give us (and you) an objective assessment:

Heart Rate Variability

Heart Rate Variability is the beat-to-beat variation in heart rate. This natural rise and fall of heart rate is caused by several physiologic phenomena, including breathing and autonomic nervous system activity. Chiropractic doctors use HRV to get a window into how the autonomic nervous system (ANS) modulates heart rate. Published research has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments have favorable effects on HRV parameters.

Each color represents differing amounts of nervous system disturbance.

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.

At your report, you’ll get to see the computerized printout and learn what it means. Our state-of-the-art software will take the results of your three scans and combine them into one simple score. Based on a scale from 0-100, the higher the number the less stress on your nervous system and your increased potential for health and wellness.

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.
