Spinal Ligament Injuries

Did you know that the most common diagnosis for back pain is the sprain/strain diagnosis? A sprain occurs when a ligament is torn, and a strain is the result of a torn muscle.

In the past, there has not been an effective means of grading and diagnosing the degree of a spinal ligament injury in Woodbury. After all, some sprains and strains are more serious than others.

Specialized Software Measures the Damage

Using x-rays taken in our clinic, we work with medical radiologists who utilize computer software that accelerates the process of what used to be done using the doctor’s hands: assessing the spine for ligament damage.

We measure the exact amount of damage to your ligaments, so there’s no gray area — we know exactly how to help you.

The Impact of Spinal Ligament Injury

Automobile collisions can result in significant damage to the spine. Chronic pain, debilitating arthritis and a diminished quality of life are some of the problems that can arise.

Working with board certified medical radiologists, we can accurately analyze spinal X-rays and determine if damage to the spinal ligament has occurred. If it has occurred, we know how to treat you.
