Dr. Kevin Wynne of Wynne Chiropractic Center Solves the Age Old Challenge of Uncovering Ligament Damage from Whiplash by Utilizing Computerized X-Ray Analysis
Wilmington, NC, August 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Car accidents cause 3 million whiplash injuries per year in the United States. Medical research shows that 50% of injury victims fully recover, 40% suffer some degree of permanent injury with chronic pain, while 10% become permanently disabled. For years the challenge has been to identify, and quantify the soft tissue injury which may result following a motor vehicle accident.
To solve this challenge Dr. Wynne is now utilizing Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis to objectively document the severity of his patients' ligament injuries. This allows a work-up of the injuries that meets industry standards and "evidence-based" guidelines.
By objectively documenting the severity of a patient's ligament injury Dr.Wynne can determine and document appropriate levels of care under the Croft Injury Treatment Guidelines.
Today's patients are demanding doctors who can fully determine and document the location and severity of spinal ligament injuries. The public is waking up to the fact that these injuries, though perhaps not immediately life threatening, can be significantly life-impairing.
From a medico-legal standpoint, the computerized analysis of x-rays allows Dr. Wynne to objectively document the patient's condition, and take the findings outside the realm of just mere opinion. If spinal ligament injury is present, CRMA analysis allows for "objectivity" enhanced by technology, which can then be translated into an impairment finding, and categorized using the "AMA's Guides To The Evaluation Of Permanent Impairment."
The results of the computerized x-ray analysis is interpreted by a Board Certified Medical Radiologist.
