 General Adaptive Potential (GAP)
The ability to adapt to our lifestyle stressors is what we at Core Health believe to be one of the most important aspects to achieving or maintaining one's short and long-term health objectives. 
Imagine that a combination of lifestyle stressors and events are constantly “pushing” down on us while our inborn, internal capacities resist this pressure. If the external forces gradually overwhelm the internal resistance and interfere with the nervous system, the GAP is narrowed.  Widening the GAP is desirable.           

Having a narrower GAP and, therefore, a lower Autonomic Activity score puts the patient in a vulnerable position. They don’t have the necessary reserves to remain resilient in the face of ongoing or upcoming stressors. They have a suppressed recovery response and as the stresses accumulate or continue their health status can decline more rapidly. The statement of “getting sicker, quicker” applies here.

            Why do we utilize the INSIGHT™ technology?

To identify your GAP
Detect hidden patterns of stress and tension
Shed light on internal changes in the body
Establish a baseline and identify potential problem areas
To Gauge and never guess on your health
To provide consistent feedback to your progress

At Core Health Chiro, we believe that each doctor and practice member are a team for treating an individual's health needs. Our state-of-the-art technology allows for an advantage beyond the old school chiropractic care.  Our team spends their time listening to understand your concerns and responding with the best care options for you. Whether you have a specific body issue (such as back pain or a spinal condition), need pain relief, or just want to improve your overall health, Core Health Chiro may have a solution for you. 

With the help of our professional staff, they also follow up to make sure that your health issues are resolved and your health improves. How do we follow-up?  Not only do we ask the right questions, but most importantly we utilize the COREscore technology on a consistent and ongoing basis to assure we have resolved the cause.  Imagine an approach in which you can physically feel and see the cause has been identified and corrected.
