Importance of Diagnosing Spinal Ligament Integrity with COMPUTERIZED RADIOGRAPHIC MENSURATION ANALYSIS
The human spine has three types of curves: lordotic (inward curve), kyphotic (outward curve), and scoliotic (sideways curve). Naturally, the spine has a smooth lordotic curve. However, if a spine is straightened or has an extreme curve, it might mean that you have a hidden injury.
Our backbone is made up of 33 vertebrae and has 3 main functions:
Protect and preserve your central nervous system
Support our straight posture and weight
Allow the head and body to move
It is the main component for us to be able to move and be healthy. Ligaments hold the vertebrae together, they work as a cushion preventing the tearing between adjacent vertebrae, making possible all the functions above.
How COMPUTERIZED RADIOGRAPHIC MENSURATION ANALYSIS supports the discovery of spinal injuries
Other doctors might "eyeball" a slippage of the vertebrae. The problem is, even a slippage of 1mm can mean that there's a hidden injury. So if the doctors don’t "see" that, then the hidden injury will remain hidden.
CRMA can accurately measure the slippage of the vertebrae. Thus, hidden injuries will be located sooner and proper treatment will be provided.
