A DEXA scan is a non-invasive test that measures bone mineral density to assess if a person is at risk of osteopenia (low bone density) and osteoporosis (bone loss) or fracture. DEXA stands for dual energy x-ray absorptiometry—a procedure in which two X-ray beams are safely aimed at the bones.
Body Composition Analysis: Beeston Hill uses the ACCUNIQ 360’s electrical impedance to measure fat, muscle, bone and water in the body to determine critical health indices including:
- BMI (body mass index): This is the relationship of height, weight and body fat to health risk. An unhealthy reading can indicate an increased risk of developing high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and other health conditions.
- Body Water Percentage: This is the total amount of intra- and extra-cellular fluid in a person’s body. Water plays a vital role in many of the body’s processes, is found in every cell, tissue and organ and can be a critical health indicator.
- Body Fat Mass: This is the weight of all the fat in the body used to calculate body fat percentage.
- Visceral Fat: This is the fat that surrounds the vital organs on the trunk/stomach area of the body. This is the fat below the abdominal wall. This type of fat is at high levels in middle-aged men (often mistakenly referred to as a “beer belly”). Men have a genetic predisposition to accumulating fat this way, and high Visceral Fat levels increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Lowering Visceral Fat levels can stabilize insulin substantially and reduce the risk of diabetes and other related illnesses.
- Body Fat Percentage: This is the amount of body fat in proportion to body weight. Reducing excess body fat has shown to reduce the risk of certain conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
- Muscle Mass: This is the weight of all the muscle in the body.
- BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate): This is the amount of calories the body burns at rest. Age, diet, muscle and fat mass, and general health all determine BMR.
- Daily Caloric Intake: This is the amount of calories one can ingest and maintain current weight considering current exercise level.
- Metabolic Age: Chronological age is age in calendar years; metabolic age is a number that comes from comparing Basal Metabolic Rate with the Basal Metabolic Rate average of a person’s chronological age group. An older metabolic age indicates poorer health than one’s age peers and could indicate health risks; a nutrition and fitness regimen should be tailored to bring metabolic age in line with- or lower than- chronological age.

The weight of all the fat in your body and what we use to calculate your body fat percentage; Visceral Fat: is the fat that surrounds the vital organs on the trunk / stomach area of the body. It’s the fat below your muscle wall. This type of fat is at high levels in middle aged men (often mistakenly referred to as a beer belly). Men have a genetic predisposition to accumulating fat this way. High Visceral Fat levels increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Lowering Visceral Fat levels can stabilize insulin substantially and reduce the risk of diabetes and other related illnesses
The amount of body fat as a proportion of your body weight. Reducing excess levels of body fat has shown to reduce the risk of certain conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer
The weight of all the muscle in your body.
The amount of calories your body burns at rest i.e. if you slept all day. Your age, diet, muscle and fat mass, and general health, all determine your BMR
The amount of calories you can ingest and maintain your current weight considering your current exercise level
The amount of bone (bone mineral level, calcium or other minerals) in the body
Chronological age is your age in calendar years. Metabolic age is a number that comes from comparing your Basal Metabolic Rate with the Basal Metabolic Rate average of your chronological age group. A metabolic age number younger than your chronological age generally means that you are fitter and in better health than the average. An older metabolic age points towards being less healthy and fit than your peers and if it’s much older than your chronological age, this should be considered a wake-up call.
blood cholesterol measurement to help determine cardiovascular risk, defining HDL & LDL levels, triglycerides, and total cholesterol.
instruction aimed at improving core strength to improve posture and thus relieving musculoskeletal stress.
If you are living with pain, muscle weakness or lack of mobility, make an appointment to assess and treat immediate or long-term problems stemming from present or past injuries, congenital conditions or chronic disease. Having consistent treatment for injuries is critical for both recovery and for documentation. People get hurt, and maybe even see a doctor, but fail to follow up with the treatment or therapy needed to return to health and function.
Many chiropractors require X-rays as a standard procedure to rule out possible tumor, dislocation or fracture and to aid in determining where to adjust the spine. Spinal X-rays provide critical information that will direct diagnosis, treatment protocols and referral options for patients.
