At Germantown Family Chiropractic, we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology that scans and measures your response to tension and stress throughout your body’s spine and nervous system. Starting from infancy and even throughout pregnancy we are able to safely test instead of guess on the best way to use chiropractic care to support you or your child’s individual needs.
Why is CORESCORE Important to Your Health?
One of the key things about our office is that we never guess about you or your child’s health, we instead always test and measure exactly how your body and nervous system are functioning. We live our entire lives through our nervous systems, and when different stressors whether physical, chemical, or emotional stressor enter our lives and more importantly continue to impact us it can affect the efficiency of our nervous system. For adults and older kiddos, when we combine together the details of all three of our scans, we also get a CoreScore or what we like to call your Health Report Card to tell us exactly how efficiently your nervous system is working!
HRV is quickly becoming the gold standard for measuring cardiovascular health. We can also use it to determine your body’s overall ability to adapt to its environment. It does this by looking at the timing of your pulse, and determining the balance and tension within your nervous system. Stressful lifestyles habits including poor dietary choices, limited exercise and constant emotional aggravation can cause the body to be caught in the "fight-flight" response. This can lead to exhaustion and a draining of a person's reserves and poor health outcomes.
The Thermal Scan is used to assess the part of your nervous system that helps to control your organs, glands, and blood vessels. The autonomic nervous system works alongside the spinal nerves to regulate your immunity while managing your internal organ functions. The instrument does this by precisely measuring differences in temperature along the spine. Temperature is an accurate indicator as to where stress is building up and how deeply it affects bodily functions.
The Surface EMG exam evaluates the function of the muscles that support and move your spine. These muscles are controlled by the nerves running within it. This test measures how much energy is needed to maintain your posture and how it is distributed throughout the muscles. If too much energy is used when a spine is out of balance, this test score will be lower than normal. Over time, daily stress can continue to overwork these muscles, causing them to lose their support and mobility. This will also lower the score. Muscle fatigue and poor energy distribution are signs of a person's entire health being under stress. By precisely measuring muscle activity, your progress can be followed as your spine releases tension and you regain more control.
