Full body thermography, also known as full body thermographic imaging, is a medical diagnostic technique being done here at Nurture Wellbeing Chiropractic PC. The procedure uses thermal imaging cameras to create a visual representation of the body’s surface temperature. It involves capturing infrared images of the entire body, which can provide valuable information about the thermal patterns and blood flow in different areas.
Thermography works on the principle that the body emits heat, and this heat is detected and displayed as different colors on a thermographic image. Areas with increased blood flow or inflammation tend to generate more heat, while areas with reduced blood flow may appear cooler.
Full body thermography is often used as a screening tool to detect abnormalities or irregularities in the body. It can help identify areas of inflammation, circulatory issues, nerve damage, and other conditions that may be affecting the body’s thermal patterns.
One of the advantages of full body thermography is that it is non-invasive and does not involve any radiation or contact with the body. It can provide a comprehensive view of the body’s thermal patterns in a relatively short period. However, it’s important to note that thermography is not a standalone diagnostic tool and is typically used in conjunction with other medical tests and evaluations to aid in diagnosis.
Full body thermography has found applications in various fields, including breast health assessment, pain management, sports medicine, and general wellness screenings. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional experienced in thermography interpretation to ensure accurate analysis and appropriate follow-up based on the results obtained from the thermographic images.
