What makes a great spinal injury doctor great is the ability to accurately and objectively diagnose their patients’ actual spinal injuries.
Why should you care? Because there is a lucrative market for those that can do this!
As the nation’s leading medical service provider that provides spinal ligament injury testing, known as Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis (CRMA), we know that our doctors are rewriting the rules for objectivity and professionalism in the spinal ligament injury market.
From our standpoint, spinal ligament injuries are the No. 1 physical cause of pain and disability, and they too often go undetected and undiagnosed. Like a bone displacement on X-ray is inherent with a fracture (inherent means the two are inseparable—can’t have one without the other), so too is excessive motion on X-ray inherent with a significant spinal ligament injury. If you have a fracture, this is seen as a bone separation on X-ray. If you have a significant ligament injury to a spinal motion unit, you will have significant excessive motion at that level identified on stress X-ray and CRMA testing.
What if the doctor states the patient has a fracture, but the doctor has no X-ray? Imagine the doctors who say there is a significant ligament injury to the spine, but have no excessive motion in the motion unit identified on X-ray or, in our case, with CRMA testing results.
Our doctors know this, and they catch their competitors napping as they can show the severity and the location of their patient’s spinal ligament injury on an X-ray with CRMA, just like you would show the X-ray bone displacement for a fracture.
Benefits of CRMA
Excessive motion testing (CRMA) performed by our board-certified medical radiologists gives our doctors immediate access to the level and severity of their patients’ spinal ligament injuries. They can then quickly correlate the X-ray findings with their patient’s history and examination to arrive at a more complete, objective and definitive diagnosis. With that diagnosis, they can continue or modify a treatment plan tailored uniquely to that patient, so they can get the kind of results that patients talk about.
These doctors get better patient results with better diagnoses and better documentation, which improves their patients’ access to insurance benefits, so they can get their bills paid. Spinal Kinetics gets the satisfaction of being able to provide this level of assistance to our doctors.
It has never been easier to determine the severity and location of a patient’s ligament injury, and we can catch the main aspect of a ligament injury that tends to be missed on most MRIs. As a matter of fact, new research shows that a stress X-ray analysis for translation problems provides you with a test that is 93 percent sensitive (determines when the patient has the condition) and 100 percent specific (determines when the patient does not have the condition) for disc protrusion.
We cater to those doctors who we regard as being on the front of the bell curve when it comes to spinal soft-tissue injuries. These doctors gain immediate insight to the patient’s condition all with one simple, inexpensive test.
In 2015, we published research that explodes the myth that spinal ligament injuries are commonly seen and picked up on X-ray. Spinal ligament injuries are a measured phenomenon, not a visual phenomenon, so they are usually missed on X-ray studies, because they are not accurately measured or, in most cases, not measured at all. In our published research they were missed 100 percent of the time with a general radiologist X-ray read.
Spinal ligament injuries do not have to be the most common cause of pain and disability in our tomorrows, as it’s time to grow and produce a whole new breed of doctors who are diagnosis-oriented and patient-results-oriented in both the injury and chronic pain market. These doctors are in high demand today, and they are experiencing some of the fastest growth in the market. Their value will never be diminished because they deliver so much more to their patients.
Today, it is more important than ever to understand what your imaging technologies can do for you and use this information. You will get a more objective and accurate diagnosis so that you can get better patient results with your patients.
To join those doctors who are already at the front of the bell curve in injury care, call Spinal Kinetics, LLC, at 877-508-9729 or visit us online at The Spinal Kinetics and put in a request for our new provider service materials. There is no cost or obligation to the doctor, only extensive information. We look forward to working with you.
