Pain and Other Conditions

X-ray, C.T, Ultrasound and M.R.I etc, are tests of anatomy. E.M.G is a test of motor physiology.  Thermography is unique in its capacity to show physiological change and metabolic processes.  It has also proven to be a very useful complemetary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.

Unlike most diagnostic modalities, thermography is non invasive and no radiation is emitted.  It is a very sensitive and reliable  means of graphically mapping and displaying skin surface temperature.  With thermography, it is possible to diagnosis, evaluate, monitor and document a large number of injuries and conditions, including soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fiber dysfunction.

This is a partial list of the conditions that thermography is useful in detecting
