Digital Motion X-ray

The purpose of a digital motion x-ray study is to assess fully the extent of the damage to the ligaments of a joint. This can be applied to the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and feet/ankles. It is not uncommon to see five sprained ligaments at each level with a digital motion x-ray study, and it would only take one to cause pain, disability, and/or permanently altered function.

The human cervical spine has twenty-two major ligaments, and all of them can be injured in a motor vehicle collision. Please don’t get the idea that digital motion x-ray studies are only for the “really difficult cases.” Everyone who is whiplashed is a “really difficult case,” as every one of them will tear ligaments, which will cause permanent consequences.

The truth is that plain film x-ray (the standard seven view Davis series), MRI, and CT scan do not adequately visualize torn ligaments. Torn ligaments are best visualized with a digital motion x-ray study.

Thank you for visiting the website of Tucson Digital Motion X-ray and Dr. Michael Winberry – a professional Tucson chiropractor. In practice as well as online, Dr. Winberry strives for excellence through superior patient treatment, education, and satisfaction. Tucson residents will find all types of health and wellness related information including information about our services, chiropractic, back and neck pain, auto injuries and much, much more.

And a big part of that “much, much more” is Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX). It’s pretty simple- in order to get the proper treatment for what ails you, your doctor has to have the correct diagnosis. If he doesn’t have the correct diagnosis, he’s guessing, and you don’t want your doctor guessing about your health. DMX studies are a cutting edge tool for diagnosing ligament tears in that they tell your doctor exactly which ligaments in your neck (cervical spine) have been damaged. In certain individuals, the lumbar spine (low back) can also be visualized. In addition, valuable information, not obtained by MRI studies, can be gained through DMX studies of the wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee, and foot/ankle.

We hope you enjoy the information within and share it with others. Again, thank you for visiting www.TucsonXray.com and remember to come back often.

Yours in health,

Dr. Michael Winberry, D.C.
Chiropractor
