Uncover Hidden Sources of Pain With an X-ray Movie of your Body in Motion
Introducing Digital Motion X-Ray
Routine x-ray studies can’t detect these hidden pain sources. Even expensive MRIs can’t detect them. But a remarkable technology called Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) can pinpoint undetected injuries even when routine x-rays and MRIs come back normal. Spine & Sports Care of Loudoun is the only chiropracter in Ashburn or Northern Virginia to have this state-of-the-art equipment.
How Does DMX Work?
Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) produces an X-ray movie of your body while you’re moving. By comparison, standard x-rays and MRIs record images of your body while you remain perfectly still. DMX’s fluoroscopy technology produces 30 X-rays per second while you move the injured area and sends the images to a video monitor.
How DMX Benefits You
- You know exactly why you’re in pain – Since most injuries happen when you’re in motion—sports injuries, falls, car accidents—Digital Motion X-ray helps Dr. Thompson detect which structure is injured and how severely.
- Your real source of pain can be treated – It’s terrible having chronic pain and not knowing the cause of it. Now DMX’s “motion picture” will reveal the cause. Soon you’ll be on your way to a pain-free recovery with the help of Dr. Thompson’s chiropractic treatment plan customized for you.
- Objective third-party evaluation – The X-ray movie of your injured area clearly shows the full scope of your injury, whether it’s ligament instability, joint dysfunction or soft-tissue injury. If you are filing an insurance claim, this vital information will help your attorney with your case and provide indisputable documentation to the insurance company.
