The aim of this study was to detect asymmetries on shoulder joint through infrared thermography in order to establish a thermo-graphic profile in volleyball players. 29 female volleyball players, aged 14-19 years, were enrolled in this study. Thermo-graphic assessment was performed before and after a training session, and a thermographic profile was established for pectoral areas (anterior view) and scapular waist and lumbar area (posterior view) with mean temperatures obtained. Statistically significant differences were found in each area before and after the exercise session. Attending laterality, there were not significant differences between dominant and non-dominant arm.
