The Role of OligoScan Nutritional Testing in Chiropractic Recovery

When it comes to chiropractic recovery, we often focus on the physical aspects of treatment, such as adjustments and exercises. However, there’s another critical factor that can significantly impact a patient’s progress: nutrition. The nutrients we consume play a vital role in the body’s healing processes and overall well-being. This page explores how OligoScan nutritional testing, a cutting-edge technology, helps our Surbiton clinic to identify nutrient deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity, that is potentially affecting our patients’ recovery and well-being.

Proper nutrition is the cornerstone of health, and it plays an equally important role in chiropractic recovery. Vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients are essential for tissue repair, nerve function, and overall healing. When a patient lacks these vital elements, their body’s ability to recover from injuries and ailments may be compromised. Additionally, heavy metal toxicity can introduce further complications, hindering the body’s natural healing process.

OligoScan is a non-invasive and efficient technology that enables our DISC Chiropractors to analyse trace elements and minerals in the tissues and provides valuable insights into nutrient deficiencies and potentially toxic metal exposure. This information empowers chiropractors to design personalized nutrition plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs, optimizing their recovery process.

Certain nutrients play a crucial role in chiropractic recovery. These include vitamin C for collagen formation, vitamin b12 for inflammation and nerve repair, vitamin D for bone health, magnesium for muscle function, and zinc for tissue repair. Through OligoScan testing, chiropractors can accurately identify which nutrients are deficient in a patient’s body and recommend dietary adjustments or supplements to address these shortcomings effectively.

Heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium, can accumulate in the body over time, leading to toxicity and adverse health effects. For chiropractic patients, heavy metal toxicity can exacerbate existing conditions and slow down the healing process. OligoScan can detect and quantify the presence of heavy metals, allowing chiropractors to take proactive measures to minimize their impact on patients’ recovery.

Integrating proper nutrition into chiropractic care can significantly enhance the body’s ability to recover and heal. A well-balanced diet rich in nutrients helps reduce inflammation, support the immune system, and alleviate pain. By combining chiropractic treatments with personalized nutrition plans, patients can experience faster and more sustainable recovery outcomes.

The immune system plays a vital role in the healing process. Proper nutrition can strengthen the immune system, making it more effective in combating infections and promoting tissue repair. By identifying immune system-supporting nutrients through OligoScan testing, chiropractors can guide their patients toward foods that optimize their body’s defence mechanisms.

The DISC chiropractors have ensured that they have developed a network of supply lines that bring the best-known varieties of nutritional supplements all for purchase at less than RRP prices at our clinic reception.

Chiropractic recovery should not be limited to addressing immediate concerns; it should also focus on promoting long-term health and well-being. Educating patients about the importance of maintaining a balanced diet even after recovery can prevent future health issues and support overall wellness.

Incorporating OligoScan testing into back pain care can revolutionize patient improvement. Our Chiropractors f undergo training to effectively administer this non-invasive scan and interpret the results. By using the insights gained from these tests, we can create comprehensive treatment plans that address both physical adjustments and nutritional support.

Is OligoScan testing safe?

OligoScan testing is non-invasive and safe. It involves using a spectrophotometer or “spectral laser” to analyse trace elements in the tissues, posing no harm to the patient.

Can OligoScan testing diagnose specific conditions?
OligoScan testing is not a diagnostic tool for health issues like diabetes for example but provides valuable insights into nutrient levels and heavy metal toxicity, assisting chiropractors in designing personalized treatment plans and identifying trends that could lead to future chronic conditions.
How long does the OligoScan procedure take?
The OligoScan procedure is quick and usually takes only a few minutes to complete.
Are there any dietary restrictions before OligoScan testing?
There are typically no dietary restrictions before OligoScan testing. Patients can eat normally before the procedure.
Can OligoScan testing help with chronic conditions?
OligoScan testing can contribute to understanding nutrient imbalances that may affect chronic conditions, aiding in developing targeted treatment strategies.
Do I really need to know my blood type to do OligoScan?
Yes, the best way to get an accurate result is to know the exact blood type that the laser will be used on. If unknown, we have specific finger prick tests that you can do at home or in the clinic to determine your type.
