Chiropractic Thermography & Thermal Imaging

Spine

Welcome to Chiropractic Thermography and Thermal Imaging - The use of thermography in chiropractic practice is not a new procedure. However with the drop in costs for FDA cleared Medical thermal imaging equipment and recent advances in infrared technology, it is seeing a new resurgence in the chiropractic and general medical fields. This web site is intended for educational purposes only.

This site is dedicated to the use of thermal imaging cameras in the chiropractic field. Thermal imaging cameras are also referred to as a FLIR (forward looking infrared), infrared imaging cameras, thermal cameras, ir cameras, thermal vision cameras, etc. If you are looking for thermal imaging uses in other medical fields such as DITI or digital infrared thermal imaging, breast infrared imaging, fever detection, etc. please see our Medical Thermal Imaging Site.

General information regarding thermography and chiropractic practices can be found under our Chiropractic Information link in the menu to your left. Please bookmark us as this site is still under construction. More information and images will be added over the upcoming weeks. Please see the links to your left for more information regarding purchasing thermal imaging equipment and/or training for Chiropractic Thermography. Thermal Imaging Cameras make it easy to quickly get an idea of problems that chiropractors look for on a routine basis. Comparable imaging techniques are antiquitaded when compared to thermal imaging.

Pain Treatment

Light therapy is used to prompt the body to repair damage associated with chronic pain, lost range‐of‐motion, wounds, and other symptoms. Cells and nerves are sensitive to light in addition to chemical, electrical, and pressure stimulation. Studies of single nerves have demonstrated that certain colors tend to activate or inhibit nerves. Some colors can act as anti‐inflammatory agents.

Quick Chiropractic Information

Chiropractic's early philosophy was rooted in vitalism, spiritual inspiration and rationalism. A philosophy based on deduction from irrefutable doctrine helped distinguish chiropractic from medicine, provided it with legal and political defenses against claims of practicing medicine without a license, and allowed chiropractors to establish themselves as an autonomous profession.

This "straight" philosophy, taught to generations of chiropractors, rejects the inferential reasoning of the scientific method, and relies on deductions from vitalistic first principles rather than on the materialism of science. However, most practitioners currently accept the importance of scientific research into chiropractic, and most practitioners are "mixers" who attempt to combine the materialistic reductionism of science with the metaphysics of their predecessors and with the holistic paradigm of wellness; a 2008 commentary proposed that chiropractic actively divorce itself from the straight philosophy as part of a campaign to eliminate untestable dogma and engage in critical thinking and evidence-based research.

Chiropractic is a health care discipline and profession that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.

It is generally considered to be complementary and alternative medicine, a characterization that many chiropractors reject. The main treatment involves manual therapy including manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissue; treatment also includes exercises and health and lifestyle counseling. Traditional chiropractic assumes that a vertebral subluxation or spinal joint dysfunction interferes with the body's function and its innate intelligence, a notion that brings ridicule from mainstream science and medicine.

Straight chiropractors adhere to the philosophical principles set forth by D.D. and B.J. Palmer, and retain metaphysical definitions and vitalistic qualities. Straight chiropractors believe that vertebral subluxation leads to interference with an "Innate Intelligence" exerted via the human nervous system and is a primary underlying risk factor for many diseases. Straights view the medical diagnosis of patient complaints (which they consider to be the "secondary effects" of subluxations) to be unnecessary for chiropractic treatment. Thus, straight chiropractors are concerned primarily with the detection and correction of vertebral subluxation via adjustment and do not "mix" other types of therapies. Their philosophy and explanations are metaphysical in nature and prefer to use traditional chiropractic lexicon (i.e. perform spinal analysis, detect subluxation, correct with adjustment, etc.). They prefer to remain separate and distinct from mainstream health care.

Mixer chiropractors "mix" diagnostic and treatment approaches from osteopathic, medical, and chiropractic viewpoints. Unlike straight chiropractors, mixers believe subluxation is one of many causes of disease, and they incorporate mainstream medical diagnostics and employ many treatments including conventional techniques of physical therapy such as exercise, massage, ice packs, and moist heat, along with nutritional supplements, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal remedies, and biofeedback. Mixers tend to be open to mainstream medicine and are the majority group.
