We review your motion study with you. We design a treatment plan specifically for you. A digital motion x-ray can reveal more information about an injury than standard film x-rays. Simply move the injured part of the body during the x-ray to reveal underlying injuries.An X-ray motion study is a detailed evaluation of how a joint moves. Advantages include more detailed plans of care, customized treatments, and the development of an accurate long-term treatment plan for recovery. An X-ray motion study can be used to evaluate any joint, including the joints up along the spinal column, for any reason. The detailed photographic results help to show a variety of issues that involve joints, even the presence and degree of whiplash. In fact, an X-ray motion study helps to show detailed ligament injuries. The study allows Dr. Sas to accurately see injuries and to share that report with your primary care doctor or insurance company.
The benefit of an X-ray motion study, beyond the advanced diagnosis opportunities that they present, includes detailed conditions of joints. Joints are not just made up of bones, but can best be described as a relationship between muscle, bone, and ligaments. The X-ray motion study allows Dr. Sas to view that relationship in great detail. This allows Gateway Chiropractic to customize care plans that are highly specific to each patient’s needs. Such detailed plans of care allow patients to receive the most appropriate care possible and to help speed recovery, decrease medication, and improve their quality of life.
