Leading the Way in Vertebral Motion Analysis (VMA)
Vertebral Motion Analysis (VMA) is an innovative, breakthrough imaging technique that vastly improved the diagnostic accuracy of the standard X-ray. Compared to older methods used to diagnose spine and neck conditions, VMA provides the first functional test that allows assessment of spinal motion for instability. It also provides X-ray video of the spine in various bent positions to detect abnormalities within the vertebrae. A VMA is particularly useful when trying to observe spinal instabilities that may not be visible with still X-rays. Additionally, it provides more accurate diagnoses of back and neck pain by showing real-time images of these areas in the process of bending.
