Nutritional Deficiency Testing & Oligoscan

When healing your body from the inside out, physical fitness can only go so far. Nutritional deficiencies, chemical imbalances or toxicity in the body, can all hold you back in everyday life, making you feel run down and tired. At ProBack Clinics we offer our patients the Oligoscan, a photometric testing device that measures the amount of essential vitamins, minerals and heavy metal toxicity in the tissues of your body.

How does the Oligoscan work?

After entering your basic patient information into the computer, the Oligoscan is held in various areas of your palm. It will then identify the density of minerals using electromagnetic signals. The Oligoscan is an ideal nutrition test alternative to blood or hair testing, which can be seen as more unstable types of testing. Within a few seconds, you’ll be able to see your results and we can make nutritional recommendations about what supplements may be best for you, and if any form of chelation therapy (liver detoxicification) could be beneficial.

What does the Oligoscan test for?

The Oligoscan is able to identify vitamin and mineral deficiencies or excesses, as well as heavy metals in your tissues, including:

  1. Calcium
  2. Magnesium
  3. Phosphorus
  4. Silicon
