At Dynamic Medical Imaging, many chiropractors refer their patients to us for our state-of-the-art, top quality equipment, along with our board-certified radiologists, and compassionate team members. In addition to our stellar reputation, they are familiar with DMI’s – Dr. Steven P. Brownstein, the Dynamic Radiologist – who is legendary in the chiropractic profession.
Chiropractic care, a natural approach to health, utilizes a hands-on assessment and x-rays to detect and correct many spinal-related health concerns. However, if a patient is not progressing with current treatments, or if additional information seen on an x-ray is needed, an MRI may be ordered, especially if the patient has neck, shoulder, low back, leg or knee pain, suffers with chronic or acute headaches, or has been involved in a whiplash injury.
An MRI scan provides detailed, accurate information regarding the body’s joints, bones, and soft tissues. Ordering an MRI for a chiropractic patient may help to rule out:
- Soft Tissue Injury
- Spinal Stenosis
- Degeneration Disc Disease
DMI’s Upright MRI allows the patient to be scanned in various positions, including sitting, standing or lying down. This provides enormous benefits – allowing patients to be scanned in their positions of pain or symptoms. Additionally, body organs and tissues can be viewed in their normal position of function – upright.
An MRI is a useful tool for diagnosing and treating back pain, neck pain, tennis elbow, osteoporosis, and arthritis, to name a few. In addition, it can monitor treatment progress. Incorporating various chiropractic diagnostic tools with medical imaging can help to generate an optimal treatment plan.
