Thermograms are popular with athletes and professional sports people as they can be used to locate an as yet undetected injury or trauma site. The accuracy of the thermograms allow a physiotherapist or acupuncturist to pinpoint, monitor, evaluate and treat the problem.
Thermograms also allow the therapist or health practitioner to accurately assess the healing period of a treated problem, allowing optimal recovery periods and speedy return to competition.
