Digital Motion X-Ray

You were stopped at a red light when another car hit you going 25 mph from behind. It was so sudden. Your neck whipped backward and forward violently, this usually results in whiplash. Now you have headaches, neck pain and stiffness that won’t go away. Your doctor ordered the usual tests — X-ray, CT scan, MRI— which he said came back “normal.” So you went home with a prescription for muscle relaxant and pain medicine for your undiagnosed whiplash injury AND you still have no idea why you’re hurting. Weeks after your car accident, you’re still in pain.

Regular x-rays are an effective test for detecting fractures, dislocations and tumors, but they often don’t pick up the soft-tissue injuries that car accidents often cause to the ligaments in the neck and shoulder areas.

If your doctor ordered an MRI and it came back negative, that doesn’t prove anything either. The MRI was negative because it primarily looks at the discs in your spinal column, not the ligaments.

What Is Digital Motion X-Ray?

Whiplash injuries that often affect the ligaments and soft tissue of the neck can’t be detected by standard x-rays or MRI scans. But they can be detected with Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) technology. The problem is, most medical doctors don’t know about this remarkable diagnostic tool. And even if they do, they probably don’t know who has the equipment.

This advanced technology, now available in Edgewater, detects ligament injuries by taking a video of your neck in motion rather than a single picture. That’s how Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) can detect injuries that only reveal themselves when you move. Since pain increases when you move your neck, it’s only logical that your injuries should be examined “in motion.”

It is a neck injury that happens when it is bent in a nodding movement violently, for example in a car accident when someone hits you from the back. This injury involves nerves, tendons, disks, and muscles in your neck that need to be monitored to ensure no serious damage was caused. Make an appointment as soon as possible with your doctor.

On average, neck stiffness goes away in a few weeks. When the injury affects only the soft tissue it takes between 6 to 10 weeks to heal. If nerves are damaged it will take longer. Our specialists can help you determine your condition and the best treatment. The earlier you start the easier it is to identify the area to work on. Call us for more information.

Physical Therapy is necessary to build flexibility and strength in the neck muscles. Follow your doctor’s advice on what medication to take to ease the pain. Apply ice to the affected area to avoid inflammation and be aware of your posture to speed the recovery. In case you are told to wear a foam collar, do it even if it is uncomfortable at the beginning. This will prevent you from accidentally hurting your neck again.

The answer is yes because the spine, the neck, and the head are connected through nerves that send messages to the brain when one of them is hurt.
If the pain spreads to your temples, forehead, and around the eyes, it might be a cervicogenic headache. Talk to your doctor to get evaluated.

Locate the painful spot and massage in circles. If you feel a knot push it carefully up and down. You can also try gently stretching your neck and moving it to left and right. Take pain relievers as advised by your doctor. Make sure you do not spend long periods of time in the same posture. If the pain persists for more than three weeks visit a chiropractor or physical therapist.
