Digital Motion X-ray Visualized An Undiagnosed Dislocated Neck
This patient was referred by a local neurosurgeon for her unresolved dizziness, headaches and neck pains after a rear end crash. Her standard MRI and X-rays were negative and did not reveal the significant damages.
We performed a Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) on this patient and found out she had a dislocated upper neck.
Craniocervical Instability / Hypermobile Neck
Our office utilizes the DMX scan to locate the hypermobile / unstable joints. Unlike a static diagnostic test such as a standard x-ray or MRI, a DMX can is a real time “live” diagnostic test that evaluates your joints stability through different arcs of movements.
A DMX scan can help target which joints are involved and where treatment should concentrate.
Our office works with many clinics both locally and nationwide to get you an effective treatment to restore proper joint biomechanics and lessen or resolve your hypermobility or instability conditions.

Digital Motion X-ray (DMX)
The only DMX in SW Washington and Greater Portland area.
DMX imaging has revolutionized the field of radiology. A real-time x-ray, the DMX is a functional moving diagnostic test, unlike standard x-rays, CT or MRI. Movement of your body during the DMX test reveals injuries that are often missed or undiagnosed with conventional static (non-movement) diagnostic test.
DMX takes 30 pictures per second and uses extremely low-dose radiation. The DMX is able to detect joint instability which can be due to trauma, such as a motor vehicle crash, or hypermobility conditions like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
DMX is a unique diagnostic test that detects ligament damage which can cause joint instability. This produces pain, inflammation and chronic muscle spasm. Ligament instability will also accelerate the wear and tear of the injured joint resulting in the premature onset of arthritis (osteoarthritis).
