Computerized Nerve System Scan

At Branchville 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. Three different technologies give us (and you) an objective assessment:

The Insight Subluxation Scans and CORESCORE Analysis were developed to help you to understand where your nerve system, and therefore your body, is working at less than its full capacity for optimal function, optimal health and optimal well-being. It also allows you to see how things like your environment at home and/or work, lifestyle and daily stresses may be impacting your nerve system and its function. With this understanding, you are better able to address the causes of your nerve system interference and enhance your body’s ability to create the health and well-being that you desire.


Your CORESCORE is derived from the analysis of 3 primary components of nerve system function that are essential to your expression of life. Together, these tests provide a functional overview of the nerve sytem, its function and the body’s ability to respond to and adapt to stresses, both environmental and internal.

These three variables are then calculated into your CORESCORE. The goal is to achieve a consistent score over 80. With this information, we can help you to understand and address the causes of nerve system interference and malfunction that are keeping you from reaching your health potential.

  • Thermal Scan
    Before and after thermal images of spineMeasures nerve regulation of organs and glands. Nerves from the spine regulate the function of organs, glands and blood vessels. Spinal subluxations can interfere with this control system. Blood vessels on either side of the spine are measured using a thermographic (temperature) scanning. These blood vessels are under the same control of specific nerves that regulate organs and glands. If spinal nerve interference is present, the blood vessels will constrict(cool) or dilate(warm). Studies indicate that temperature imbalance is related to poor nerve control and poor regulation of the organs and glands.
  • Surface EMG
    Before and after sEMG scansSurface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Subluxations disturb the function of the nervous system. If the spinal nerves are interfered with or if the muscles are overworked or overtired, the EMG scans will show color and low scores. The colors and scores tell us how energized or exhausted the entire spinal muscle and nerve system are when performing the simple task of sitting. We use this highly-accurate, non-invasive scan to document your progress. It’s a more accurate assessment of how you are healing than just looking at how you feel.
  • Pulse Wave Profile ® Heart Rate Variability (HRV) assessment
    Before and After of HRVThe Pulse Wave Profiler measures the change in the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats – which is directly related to the body’s capacity to sense and respond to its environment. HRV is an up-and-coming method that is becoming recognized by many healthcare disciplines as an important indicator of overall health, adaptability, and resilience. Through this technology we can keep track of your overall adaptability and ability to handle stress.

What to Expect

After gowning, we’ll have you sit still for a moment or two. For the first test, starting at the base of your spine, we’ll use a tool which rolls up your spine, measuring skin temperature. Next, we will use discs which read the electricity in the muscles. Think of these as miniature radio antennas listening for a distant station. Finally, you will rest the three middle fingers of your left hand in a scanner that measures your heart rate and skin temperature.

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 a focal point of our practice.
