Full Body / Half Body Thermal Scan
Signs of Inflammation
Do you suffer from pain or any of the following symptoms of inflammation?
- Redness on the skin
- Swollen joint that’s sometimes warm to the touch
- Joint pain
- Joint stiffness
- Loss of joint function
What is a Thermal Health Scan?
An full body / half body thermal scan (or infra-red thermography/thermal imaging) is a non-invasive, no radiation procedure. It records and produces a careful analysis and image of skin surface temperature patterns (body heat). As a result, gives a reflection of normal or abnormal human physiology. In simplest terms, thermography means “ Picture of Heat”. Therefore, thermography detects INFLAMMATION in the body.
Why is the body heat map helpful?
A full body / half body thermography is an excellent tool in sports medicine and pain management.
Why? The scan can map inflammation from neurologic or musculoskeletal dysfunction.
Thermography uses infra-red photography to measure thermal emissions from the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The thermograph is the picture produced. It provides a visual means of identifying areas of inflammation.
Thermal Imaging can help determine where your pain is coming from and the best way to treat it. Prompt and more effective treatment may be initiated so that full blown, difficult to manage, chronic disability may be averted.
What makes Thermography different?
X-rays, ultrasound, and MRIs are all tests that provide information on the structures found within the body. Whereas, Thermography is the only imaging technology to date that shows physiological changes and metabolic processes. Thermography can often show where the pain is coming from. And there is no exposure to x-rays, nothing to prompt claustrophobic feelings.
Thermography is useful for detecting and monitoring many conditions
A Full body / half body thermal scan can detect the following conditions.
- Vein Conditions (deep vein thrombosis, for example)
- Visceral Dysfunction
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- Chronic Low Back Pain
- Headache / Sinus Pain
- Neck and Back Problems
- Referred Pain
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
- Skin Cancer
- Chronic Nerve Injury
- Sports Injuries
