The Benefits of Thermography

The first step in our analysis is a spinal thermography scan. Spinal thermography shows us how the parts of the nervous system that control your organs, glands, and blood vessels are functioning.

It does this by measuring the part of your nervous system called your autonomics. The autonomics are what you learn about in your high school psychology class. Think of the fight or flight response.

Why is this important?

If you are running through the jungle being chased by a tiger, your body’s natural response is to send all blood to your muscles so that you can either fight harder or run faster. In doing this, less blood is sent to your organs, glands, and blood vessels in your body.

The same thing happens in the body when subluxations (misalignments in the spine) are present. Subluxations cause nerve interference in the body, and nerve interference causes a stress response just like that of being chased by a tiger, continually. While it would be normal to have blood shunted away from your organs, glands and blood vessels if you were being chased by a tiger—it is no way to live your everyday life.

What we see when subluxations are present in the spine is a change in how blood flows to the surrounding nerves. This change in blood flow will constrict the blood vessels on the side of the spine with the decreased nerve function.

It will be cooler in temperature than the opposite side of the spine at the same level. This temperature difference allows us to pinpoint each individual’s exact problem areas.

Results You Can See

Overall, our thermography technology allows us to see a real-time graphic representation of exactly how severe the problems are. It gives us a read-out and a colored graph that shows mild, moderate, severe, or extremely severe readings.

From this, we can determine the problem areas and what we need to do to be able to fix it, thereby getting you functioning better, and feeling better.
