Digital infrared thermography as used by upper cervical chiropractors like Dr. Jason Gonzales, DC is a safe, non-invasive, and convenient diagnostic tool used to measure the current state of function of the central nervous system – specifically the autonomic nervous system. Dr. Gonzales, DC is interested in the function of the nervous system because the body’s nervous system controls all the other functions of the body and it plays a critical role in helping a person heal and recover from a variety of chronic health problems.
One of the most important aspects of treating chronic health problems like the types Dr. Gonzales commonly sees in his Chico, CA office (recurring migraines, frequent headaches, chronic neck and back pain, fibromyalgia and a few others) is timing – knowing when to provide treatment and when to step back and give the body time to heal and repair.
One of the reasons upper cervical chiropractors, like Dr. Jason Gonzales in Chico, CA have the reputation for dramatically improving stubborn and chronic health problems is because they have great timing. They use digital infrared thermography to determine when and when not to treat the patient.
The process is based on the precise analysis of the body’s surface temperature along the spine. Differences in temperature between opposite sides of the spine are compared to established normal values in the same way blood tests are. The significance of these temperature differences may indicate the presence of abnormal nervous system function. Abnormal nervous system function is a major roadblock to health and healing.
Upper cervical chiropractors use thermography to analyze a patient’s nervous system and if a problem is found they will deliver a very precise adjustment to the upper neck in an effort to restore normal nervous system function. Following the adjustment and a short rest period the doctor uses thermography again to ensure the adjustment was effect and the patient’s body is once again in a position to function normally. The process is repeated at subsequent visits and over time the patient experiences a dramatic improvement in their chronic health condition.
