It literally sucks the life out of tissues and sets brains and body systems on fire! That’s why a “stress score” is such a powerful tool to communicate the impact that chiropractic care can have. We designed two types of scores: One for adults and one for Kids so that no one was left behind when it came to showing off chiropractic outcomes. We called them CORESCORES because chiropractic affects the core of everyone’s health and well-being.
The CORESCORE takes the mystery and terror out of symptoms and stress and sets the conversation on exactly the right path: restoring function and allowing the body’s natural abilities to reorganize themselves. That’s why the CORESCORE examination is the essential feature of the Initial assessment. It benchmarks how capable or compensated the patient’s nervous system is.
What makes up a CORESCORE?
From using data from tens of thousands of scans on all ages of patients we were able to identify what we refer to as the “well-adjusted range”… the expectation of where chiropractic care can take patients. We were able to plot and analyze this date so we could present it as an index of neural efficiency. When a person is laboring under long term stress their score is likely lower because their nervous system is overburdened and underperforming. If 100% is amazing and ideal, then a score of 50 or 60 is very concerning. A low score like that means that the combination of the Autonomic Nervous System and postural Motor Nervous system is only performing at 50-60% of its ability when tested. That’s a C or D grade on anyone’s report card!
The Critical Shift
Just imagine what you can report when you use the CORESCORE. The critical shift from being a spinal mechanic to a neuro wizard has already begun! You can get right to the point and indicate that you have a solution for what brought them in and for taking them on a beautiful restorative health journey whose benefits will last them a lifetime. The great news is we have built a report that speaks for you and the results. It’s an ideal take home report that informs and INSPIRES and confirms your dedication to them and not just their symptoms.
The initial CORESCORE sets the stage, but we didn’t stop there. There are three more report cards that track the improvements and continue to build out the chiropractic story as they improve under your care. The first re-exam produces the PROGRESS report followed by the COMPARATIVE and then CONTINUATION reports. Together they form the CORESCORE sequence, a comprehensive journey map that makes your life so much easier and their commitment so much stronger.
