Pain & Inflammation
Pain in the body shows up as Hyperthermia (hot spots: red and white) or Hypothermia (cold spots: blue, purple, and black) indicating to the client and/or practitioner a vascular or nerve problem within the body. The spectrum of colors indicates an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface.
Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in the normal body, subtle abnormal temperature asymmetries can be easily identified. Used as a preventative tool, DITI can be a wonderful resource for vascular problems and carotid arteries. TMJ, infected root canals, and gum disease can also be indicated by thermography.
As well as pinpointing the source of pain, DITI can also monitor the healing process before the patient is returned to work or training.
Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Heat patterns indicate inflammation, which is precursor to disease in the body and directly correlates with other diagnostic tests.
Early detection of inflammation is critical – you can prevent or intervene in the development process before it turns into disease. Inflammation can also be reduced by dietary changes, supplements, detoxification, stress-reduction, massage and acupuncture.
Measuring inflammation through thermal imaging on a consistent basis can also be very effective at detecting the severity of a medical condition.
