4 Benefits of Thermography
If you are an advocate of natural living but have never heard of thermography, you might be missing out on valuable knowledge that could help with injury or illness detection in your body. Thermography uses an infrared thermal camera to take images of temperature changes on the surface of the skin and display heat patterns to show signs of inflammation, injury, and illness.
While thermography might seem fairly new, over 800 studies have been conducted to prove thermography is a safe and effective way to examine the human body. Here are 4 benefits of using thermography to live your healthiest life.
Thermography is an Inflammation Detector
Do you know that pain you’ve been feeling in your neck and back? Thermal vision tests offer an early way to detect signs of lingering inflammation that may later result in a diagnosis. When these patterns are identified, it enables people to make important lifestyle changes and healthy choices to avoid disease.
Thermography is a Powerful Baseline Informant
There is no health risk associated with thermographic scans, meaning thermography can safely be used to capture a baseline image of your health. As things change in your body, you can come back for a follow-up scan to see the differences in your image.
Thermography Identifies (and Explains) Pain
Thermography can be used to identify sensory-nerve irritation or significant soft-tissue injuries and identify a source of pain. When looking at a thermograph, there are an array of red, orange, yellow, and blue hues. Our interpreting doctors at Physician’s Insight interpret these colors and patterns to identify potential issues.
Thermography can Prevent or Stop Outbreaks
Thermal imaging cameras are even used in airports to detect illness during epidemics like the swine flu. While this doesn’t directly relate to an individual health scan, this does show the power of thermography as a whole. Fun fact: Thermography is used across numerous industries. Medical Thermography is just one of many instances that use thermal images patterns.
