Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Do the Insight Millennium tests hurt?
Absolutely not. The tests do not utilize any needles, electrical shock, or heat whatsoever. They are receiving important information from your Central Nervous System measured with infrared technology and surface Electromyography.
2. Why do the doctors administer these tests?
Wills Chiropractic's purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the spine which cannot be seen on X-ray. Abnormal spinal function causes abnormal Nervous System disturbance.
3. Why is it important to monitor the results?
We at Toyos Chiropractic want the best results for our patients. We can easily monitor your changes through periodic progress exams. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure (the weight of a dime!)* can disturb the communication of the Nervous System whether of not symptoms are present. Dr. Toyos can measure the results after removing pressure by using the advanced technology of the Insight Millennium. This vitally necessary to monitor how the spine is working. It is key to improving your health and well-being.
