Why is COREScoreTM Important to Your Health?
We live our entire lives through our nervous systems. Every movement, sensation, emotion and organ function is under the guidance of the nerves. With COREScoreTM, we can now accurately report on the efficiency of your central nervous system. Ignoring the warning signs puts your health at risk.
The COREScoreTM is made up of the three most important spinal-neural tests: Pulse Wave Profiler, Surface EMG and Thermal Scan which tell us how stress is impacting your overall health and well-being. It precisely detects where and how deep the problem is.
Chronic stress and body tension damages everyone’s health. Based on your individual COREScoreTM, your chiropractor will develop a highly personalized care plan with a goal of moving towards a score of 100 – near perfect spinal nerve function!
Here’s What your COREScores Tell Us
Heart Rate Variability:
The Pulse Wave Profiler helps the doctor to determine your overall ability to adapt to the environment. It does this by looking at the timing of your pulse, and determining the balance and tension within your nervous system. This exam is known as heart rate variability. 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. A score within the green box on the graph is associated with better adaptability and relates to a healthy lifestyle. Low heart rate variability is associated with accelerated aging and poor heart health. Published research has shown that chiropractic adjustments have a beneficial effect on heart rate variability.
Muscle Tone and Balance:
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.
Organ and Gland Control:
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. Each organ system relies on clear and balanced nerve signals to work efficiently. Nerve interference that is detected by this sensor is valuable in understanding and planning health and wellness strategies.
