Thermography is the use of an infrared thermal scanner that takes specific measurement
of skin temperature along the spine.
It evaluates the effects that vertebral subluxation may have on the function of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS controls all of the automatic processes of the body including all of the organs, glands and circulation. If a vertebral subluxation complex is interfering with local autonomic nerves, there may be an asymmetric pattern of skin temperature as a result of a variation of circulation in that region which thermography can detect.
