Why DMX shows more than X-rays

How to Order a DMX Exam

  What type of Patient and Symptoms benefit from DMX Study?

  Patients with “Whiplash” or Cervical Acceleration-Deceleration (CAD)
  injuries and symptoms.
  • Neck ache
  • Neck stiffness with limited movement
  • Headache
  • Neck tenderness
  • Dermatomal / sclerotomal pain radiation
  • Dizziness
  • Increased pain with movement
  • Aberrant/Abnormal Neck Motion
  • Hypermobility of the Neck
  • Restricted Motion/Hypomobility

Definition of “Whiplash”

Whiplash is an Acceleration-Deceleration mechanism of energy transfer to the neck. This may result from rear-end or side-impact motor vehicle collisions, but can also occur during diving or other mishaps. The impact may result in BONY or SOFT TISSUE injuries, which in turn may lead to a variety of clinical manifestations. Therefore, injuries can occur to the many different structures in the cervical neck, and create different types of symptoms from “Whiplash” or Cervical Acceleration- Deceleration (CAD) injuries. The Clinician’s task is to sort out the symptoms and determine which Diagnostic Test is best suited for the patient’s symptoms. In a recent post-mortem study of car accident victims, it was concluded that: “Postmortem studies have found that after CAD 'whiplash' injuries, ligamentous injuries are extremely common in the cervical spine and that herniation of the nucleus pulposus is a rare event.” From this data, many car accident survivors with Whiplash/CAD symptoms may benefit more from a DMX than an MRI. Clinicians need to determine from physical exam and clinical history which test is appropriate, whether there are:
'Whiplash' symptoms
requiring a DMX
Neurologic symptoms
requiring an MRI
...or both exams
