COREscore Stress Testing

At the Brampton Health Centre, we are known to be the leaders in innovation and technology in our community. We provide cutting- edge COREscore assessments, which measures the stress in your body and the health of your brain and spine using three non-invasive tests:

  1. Muscle Tone and Balance
  2. Organ and Gland Control
  3. Heart Rate Variability

"Daily stresses have a quiet way of settling in and changing a person’s health. Over time, the muscles along the spine can shorten; spinal joints can begin to lock while postures twist and shift. Most importantly, the nerves inside the spine that connect the brain to the body start to be affected. This spinal nerve tension begins to change the core of your body.

Your core is designed in two parts. The first part is situated around your waist and is referred to as your “support core”. It keeps you balanced and upright. Your second core is like the core of an apple. It runs through the center of your body and is referred to as your “communication core”. It connects your brain to all your body functions. This part of your core keeps you alive, healthy and vital.

The three tests measure how efficiently your nerve connections inside the core are working. The assessment measures how signals from the brain flow through the muscles that move and support you. It looks to to see if tiny temperature variations are occurring along the spine. The nerves that regulate your temperature, control your inner organs. Finally, it tests your heart rate to see if your daily stress loads are affecting yourability to cope. All the data from these tests is put together and then complex calculations are then made to create your Core Score. Your score tells us how much interference is in your communication core and how we can begin to help you".

The COREscore is based on a scale from 0- 100. The higher the number, the
better the communication along those important nerves.
