Thermography – A Method Available for “Visualizing” Your Pain

Whether your pain is acute or chronic, thermography can help provide answers to your pain issue.

Thermography Scan ImageIn fact, thermography:

  • Remains the only method available for visualizing your pain and pathology…
  • Can assess pain and pathology anywhere in your body….
  • Is very cost effective, risk free, and provides you with instant images…
  • Fills in the gap in clinical diagnosis…

While x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, and MRI scans are all tests of “anatomy” that measure structures of your body, thermography is unique in its ability to measure your physiological changes and metabolic processes.

What Else Can Thermography Help in Your Body?

Thermography screenings can assess heart function and may indicate inflammation in the carotid arteries (which may be a precursor to stroke and blood clots). When inflammation and/or occlusion of the carotid is visible, your doctor may do additional testing…and here are some other examples:

    • Arthritis: Thermography may help indicate early signs of arthritis — and differentiate between osteoarthritis and more severe forms like rheumatoid. Effective early treatment strategies can then be implemented, before you experience further degeneration.
    • Neck and Back Pain: Thermal pain patterns ‘light up’ white and red hot on a scan in the involved area. You can get relief faster and begin restorative care that more precisely targets the correct area.
    • Dental Issues: If you have TMJ, gum disease, or an infected tooth, this will show up on a thermal scan as white or red hot.
    • Sinus Issues & Headaches: Significant heat in your forehead or sinus region revealed on a thermal scan may be an indicator that these systems in your body are not functioning properly.

Thermography Scan Example

  • Immune Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue: The immune system correlates to the T1 andT2 areas of your spine — high levels of heat in that region may indicate immune dysfunction. On the other hand, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and aching joints are just a few complaints that correlate to cool patterns seen at this area.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS): This condition is often misdiagnosed. For instance, you may think you have CTS, yet the scan shows your neck is referring pain from a different affected area. This will help you get the most appropriate treatment.
  • Digestive Disorders: Irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease are often visible with thermography. If you’re able to address these conditions early on, you’ll find that health restoration is much more likely.

Thermography Scan ImageThermography is an excellent breast health screening tool, currently being recognized for helping women maintain healthy breasts by monitoring for changes over time.

Thermography is a safe, non-contact, non-invasive examination of the breasts. Our Breast Thermogram consists of a detailed health history, 8 images of your breasts at all angles and breast health education such as self breast exam and dry brushing. In addition, you receive an interpretation report and full set of images from a Medical Doctor. Breast Thermography is NOT a stand alone device and does not replace mammography.

With all the great benefits of thermography, it may sound complicated — but it’s not!
