The Power Of Thermography In Detecting Spinal Problems
Those who are unfortunate to suffer from back pain and associated discomfort related to spinal problems can really benefit from the use of thermography technology. In order to treat a spinal problem, the issue first needs to be diagnosed correctly, and that’s where a thermography scan really comes into its own.
What Is Thermography Technology?
Thermography scanning – also known as digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI) – is a non-invasive screening procedure that basically uses a specialised camera to take infrared pictures of the problem area. These images are then displayed on a special screen for the health care professional to examine the results.
Normal tissue and damaged or diseased tissue emit different heat signals. Have you ever noticed when you suffer a muscle injury, for example, that the injurious zone feels warmer than the surrounding areas? Thermography scans can detect even the slightest differences in heat triggered by an injury or abnormality, thus greatly enhancing the ability to form a correct diagnosis and also zero in on the problem area.
The innovation of thermography scanning is used to detect all kinds of ailments, joint problems and diseases.
Thermography Scanning and Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractors around the globe have found thermography technology to be an invaluable tool in detecting issues with the spine. It’s a painless, safe and a very reliable way to diagnose issues such as spinal subluxations (misalignment of the spine). No radiation is used in these tests, just the power of infrared light and thermal imaging.
Spinal problems can cause all sorts of problems, and are not just limited to back pain alone. A misaligned spine can lead to pain in the legs and other issues. In order for a chiropractor to effectively be able to help you with your back pain, they need to first be able to pinpoint the exact cause of your discomfort.
A thermography scan carried out by a professional chiropractor will zero in on the cause of your spinal problems. Once the cause has been identified, then your chiropractor will be able to formulate an effective solution to the issue, working with you to correct the problem so you can live a pain-free life.
