Only 50% of people injured in an auto collision in the Boise area ever fully recover. Therefore, getting properly diagnosed as early as possible is extremely important. A thorough examination combined with unique analysis of “stress” Xrays that we use at mc2 can lead to the discovery that ligaments in the neck can often be injured. These injured ligaments are often missed on standard Xrays.
At Modern Chiropractic Center we use MyoVision’s DynaROM, or Dynamic Range of Motion. This is a functional test that measures muscle guarding and range of motion at the same time as the patient moves. By moving the patient, we effectively elicit measurable pain responses and guarding when soft tissue injury is present.
DynaROM is the latest in FDA cleared class II diagnostic equipment. It effectively and objectively measures the impact of soft tissue injury by documenting pain in motion. So we can finally see graphically, not only the “quality of motion” but if muscle guarding, a critical measure of patient’s level of pain, occurs. We can then utilize our rehabilitation methods and measure improvement over time at each re-examination.
