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. And now you have headaches, neck pain and stiffness that won’t go away. Your doctor ordered the usual tests — X-rays 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.
Fact: 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 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.”
Coastal Integrative Healthcare in Edgewater, FL is the premier facility in the surrounding areas of New Smyrna Beach and Oak Hill to provide this breakthrough technology to detect patients’ whiplash injuries from car accidents. You’ll enjoy these benefits:
