At MaxHealth LA, we offer on-site DIGITAL MOTION X-RAY ®. This is a diagnostic test that records real time, full motion x-ray imaging of any body joint in motion. Diagnosing “in motion” is ideal for pains that increase with motion, injuries from a sudden jolt such as whiplash, slip and fall or a blow from a sports activity. It also helps find the cause of joint pains that haven’t been determined by conventional X-rays, MRIs or other diagnostic testing. DMX can often unlock the mystery of spinal pain, which can be difficult to diagnose objectively.
DMX has been proven instrumental in many auto accident cases. The connective tissues that connects cervical bone-to-bone can be easily torn during the head and neck trauma of an auto accident. Until now, it has been difficult to diagnose and prove ligament damage.
Digital Motion X-Ray visually demonstrates aberrant movement of bones, allowing the doctor or radiologist to specifically determine which ligaments are injured. Treatment can then be tailored to the patient’s need and progress can be measured.
