There is a large amount of literature on thermographic neurology. The AMA created an in depth paper in 1987, as this technology was emerging. The paper in itself is a great tool and still the basis of our protocols in thermographic neurology today. The analysis of the hyperthermic and hypothermic patterns allow the Thermologist to make neuromuscular assessments.
Thermography neurology is important in aiding the diagnosis of many diseases that have been difficult to assess with traditional methods. These include conditions such as: radiculitis, peripheral neuritis, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), upper motor neuron lesions, multiple sclerosis, ALS, and more neurological diseases.
Thermography has long been used by Neurologists, Chiropractors, PT’s, and other professional to assess the nervous system. Take a look at the images below. Please read the AMA Council for NMS Thermography
