A Gazette article


In an effort to provide the best care possible for the community, Drs. Andrew and Andrea Williamson of Chiropractic First introduced the Insight Subluxation Station the newest technology available for the chiropractic profession into their family wellness practice in Mount Airy.

This technology is used to assist in the detection of subluxations by measuring physiological activity. Subluxation is the term used to describe an abnormal position/ movement of the spinal vertebrae which disturbs communication within the central nervous system, causing decreased human potential and function. The Subluxation Station features two different, painless and non-invasive tests that help characterize this abnormal activity surrounding the spine.

"Often times, subluxations do not create pain or discomfort until they have progressed to an advanced stage," says Dr. Andrea. "The Subluxation Station helps me to accurately identify these problems before they become symptomatic." As a result, your chiropractor can prepare a specific care program based on each patient's test results.

Dr. Andrew received extensive hands-on training at a four-day chiropractic program. "At the program, I was provided with scientific research that proves having a subluxation-free spine and nervous system is an essential component of optimum health. Our vision and mission is to serve this community by promoting spinal health and wellness," maintains Dr. Andrew.

Anyone wishing to receive a computerized spinal screening can contact Chiropractic First at 301-829-4040 to arrange for an appointment or request more information about chiropractic and the technology.
