At Peak Energy Chiropractic, We use digital motion X-ray to see how your spine moves. Rather than having you stand still while taking a picture of your spine, like most X-rays, Dr. Deveau has the patient go through the specific motions to see exactly which segments are moving and which ones are “stuck”. It is clear that most people hurt more when they move, or are injured while they are moving, so the best form of analysis is to view their spine in those motions to analyze specifically, the area of concern.
Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) is simply a new type of fluoro-based x-ray system, coupled with new digital and optic technology, allowing clinicians to view the spine in real-time motion at 30 x-rays per second. The procedure is performed with the patient standing and actively moving in a weight-bearing position within the system.
