Seen in the media on Fox News, The Doctors, Bones, NBC, ABC and more, Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) is changing lives across the country everyday. It is simply a fluoroscopic x-ray system with digital and optic technology allowing the spine and body to be viewed in real-time motion. This is done at a rate of 30 x-rays per second. The procedure is performed with the patient standing and actively moving. The results are shown as an x-ray movie of the injury.
DMX welcomes all of us to the future of medicine. “My patients are amazed by this technology,” says John N. Huy, D.C., DACBN, Founder and Clinic Director at Tarpon Total Health Care in Tarpon Springs, Florida. “When I explain how DMX is used to find evidence of injury that static films and MRI miss, my patients are excited to have it done.”
Regular static x-rays are an effective test for detecting fractures, dislocations and tumors, but they often can’t detect the soft-tissue injuries. Based on sound scientific principles, DMX provides clinicians with a cutting-edge test to evaluate ligament damage, soft-tissue injuries and joint dysfunction.
With DMX breakthrough technology, sub-failure ligament damage (often caused by car accident injuries such as whiplash) can be quickly and easily detected. This type of injury stretches and loosens the ligament rather than actually tearing the ligament. If this type of injury is not detected, the patient continues to experience headaches at the base of skull, as well as neck, shoulder and upper back pain for weeks or months after an accident.
Patients heal faster when they get the right test, an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan to get back to a pain-free life. DMX technology provides a higher degree of accuracy in diagnosis giving patients that extra edge for getting better … faster.
Tarpon Total Health Care is the only chiropractic clinic in the county to utilize DMX in the evaluation and management of our patients.
