Thermography uses the distribution of surface temperature in order to assess the structural damage or behavior of what lies under the surface.
The association between changes in temperature and disease is almost as old as medicine itself. Hippocrates stated, “should one part of the body be hotter or colder than the rest, then disease is present in that part”. The first application of thermal imaging was in the early 19th century and did not have any commercial purpose. Following the 2nd World War, infrared imaging systems were used to monitor changes in skin temperature in relation to certain diseases.
At Huddersfield Osteopathy we use Digital Infrared thermal Imaging to create a visual display of a patient's subjective feeling of pain. By having a visual tool we can measure and monitor treatment progress.
