What is Tytron Thermography?
Tytron Thermography is a safe, painless, and reliable test that measures the infrared heat emitted from the body’s surface; without the use of radiation or other harmful effects. Unlike many other tests, Thermography is unique in that it has the ability to display areas of nerve irritation or areas of where the body is not functioning correctly. This is critical due to the fact that the health of the nervous system can determine the health of the body. This examination provides vital information for the nervous system and overall function of the body.
The Tytron can be used to find these areas of asymmetry, as well as indicate areas that may be warm due to acute soft tissue damage, joint inflammation, disc protrusion, and other spinal related conditions. The Tytron Paraspinal Thermal Scanner utilizes precision sensors, special lenses and unique focusing barrels to take multiple readings along the spine. The scan begins at the low back and rolls up to the upper neck, giving a painless and full reading on patients ranging from infants to adults.
Why Do We Use Tytron Thermography?
Our goal for your health is proper nervous system function. Since the nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body, normal nervous system function becomes the core reason for good health. The nerves run from the brain, down the spinal column, and out to affect various organs throughout the body including your eyes, ears, lungs, kidneys, skin, and even your heart.
Chiropractic focuses on a specific condition that robs the body of normal nerve impulses. This condition is called a spinal subluxation. The subluxation is defined as an abnormal positioning and/or mechanical function of the spine that interferes with the normal functioning of the nervous system.
By using the Tytron and comparing spinal temperature differences to established normal values, Dr. Andrew can make important decisions about the health of your nervous system and what care may be needed for your body to function at its best.
