What are Scans?

insight scanAt Hanson Family Chiropractic, we’re all about utilizing cutting-edge chiropractic technology to give you the best care possible. With our advanced tools, we can scan your spine and provide a computerized image showing any hidden stress and tension in your Nervous System. These technologies give us a clear, objective assessment, so we know exactly what’s happening in your body.

Heart Rate Variability

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a valuable tool for understanding the balance within your Nervous System. It assesses the equilibrium between the fight-flight response and the rest-repair functions. When life stressors overwhelm us, it can keep our bodies stuck in the fight-flight mode, depleting our reserves and leaving us more susceptible to the demands of daily life. By monitoring HRV, we gain insight into how well your body is coping with stress and can work towards restoring balance for better overall health and resilience.

Thermal Scan

The Thermal Scan is a helpful tool for evaluating the balance of temperature along your spine. This assessment provides insights into the function of the part of the Nervous System that oversees your organs, glands, and blood vessels. Temperature variations detected by the scan indicate areas where stress is accumulating and the extent to which it is impacting your body. By identifying these imbalances, we can tailor our approach to address the underlying stressors and promote better overall health and well-being.

Surface EMG

Surface EMG (Electromyography) is a valuable tool for assessing the flow and distribution of energy in your body. It helps us understand how tension impacts your ability to resist gravity effectively, particularly around your spine. When tension builds up, it can lead to imbalances in your Nervous System, causing it to become either overactive or underactive. This can make it challenging to cope with the stresses of daily life.

It’s important to note that these tests are entirely non-invasive and completely painless. Rest assured, anyone undergoing these scans, including newborns, will not experience any discomfort. They simply provide us with valuable information to guide our approach to optimizing your health and well-being.
