LINO LAKES, Minn., July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Jami Rassmussen, of Health Path Chiropractic, has joined a growing number of pediatric focused chiropractic doctors who have upgraded their level of care to assess and help children suffering from ADHD. The INSIGHT Technology is certified by the Space Foundation and used on Super Bowl Champions, Olympic Gold medalists, and now more and more children.
Patients of Health Path Chiropractic can now receive a neurological evaluation using the INSIGHT Subluxation Station that helps identify hidden body stress which can affect areas of the brain responsible for focus and impulse control. The evaluation can be completed in less than 15 minutes, is non-invasive and produces instant feedback to the patient. Once the areas affected have been discovered, gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments are given to correct the misinformation being sent to the brain.
The technology is able to measure dys-afferentation in the nervous system. Dys-afferentation is when nociception (disruptive information about the environment) instead of proprioception (positive information about the environment) is sent to the brain. This stimulates a stress response in the brain which puts the body into a sympathetic dominant state (fight or flight). Knowing if a child with ADHD is stuck in a sympathetic state is important because when they are in this state learning and impulse control become very difficult.
"The adjustment has not changed much since Chiropractic's creation 120 years ago. It is still as gentle and safe as it has ever been," states Dr. Rassmussen. "But now, paired with this technology, we know where and when to adjust and the results have been incredible!"
