Thermography – What is it?? posted on June 27, 2010 Share this Post Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Share on Google Plus Thermography is a non-invasive, painless, and harmless test that can be performed on both men and women to detect pain, inflammation, and potentially dangerous abnormalities. It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as for monitoring therapy treatment. Men and women can benefit from thermography for conditions such as: back injuries, arthritis, headaches, nerve damage and injury, fibromyalgia, TMJ, vascular disease, carpal tunnel, skin cancer, sprains, fractures, and digestive disorders. For women, thermography provides an FDA approved method of detecting breast cancer and abnormalities earlier than mammograms, self tests, or doctor examination alone. Unlike mammograms, there is no risk associated with thermographic breast scans, and it is PAIN-FREE! As illustrated in the image to the right, red, yellow and orange coloration on the image is a sign of inflammation. Having a visual ‘map’ of the source and range of your pain and inflammation can be an incredible tool for both you and your health care practitioners! Thermography is safe, painless, FDA AND JOE approved!
