Today’s Radiologists Can Help Doctors Accurately Diagnose Spinal Ligament Injuries
Spinal ligament injuries are the number one cause of pain and disability in both the US and the World today. In the past doctors have absolutely struggled to determine the severity and location of these injuries. This fact alone has probably been the biggest reason why this relatively simple injury has caused so much trouble for so many people.
Patients have been walking into their Chiropractor, Osteopath or Medical Specialist with spinal ligament injuries from car accidents, slip and falls, work related incidents, sports related incidents and all manor of other incidents that can cause the spinal ligaments to over stretch and tear. These same patients for far too long now have had these doctors construct a treatment program without knowing the severity and location of the actual ligament injury of the spine. The result of which all too often is a patient that treats for months on end, sometimes years on end and comes out of that process with a chronic problem that does not seem to have any solution. These patients have often been manipulated, massaged, exercised, worked out, drugged, had their nerves burned, and still the condition does not fully resolve.
When conditions do not resolve the cause has not been fully understood. Jeffrey A. Cronk DC, JD
Not an ideal result and is perhaps the biggest reason why over 100 Million people in the US suffer from sort of chronic pain—with neck and back pain being the most common.
Today this no longer needs to happen, and today any doctor can get assistance in determining the location and severity of these injuries with the help of specialized radiologists utilizing sophisticated technology that can allow them to accurately measure “joint laxity” of the individual spinal motion units. Obviously the more laxity the joint has the more damaged the restraints (ligaments) are that are designed to keep it in alignment. Todays modern specialist can now take the inter-segmental motion report, understand where the problem is and set up a much more targeted treatment program to stabilize the now known area of instability. This of course will lead to better results with less care in many cases.
Now doctors can understand exactly where these spinal injuries and their treatment programs can be much more targeted and effective as a result.
