Today, we embark on an intriguing exploration into the world of spinal stability health and the revolutionary approach taken by Dr. Trip Goolsby, MD, and the dedicated team at Infinite Health IMC. Join us as we unravel the complexities of non-disc spinal ligament injuries, their often undiagnosed nature, and the transformative technologies that shine a light on these critical aspects of spinal stability.


In a recent study titled Chronic Neck Pain: Making the Connection Between Capsular Ligament Laxity and Cervical Instability, we stumbled upon a revelation that adds a new layer of understanding to the challenges faced by individuals recovering from mild traumatic brain injuries (MTB) or concussions. The research highlights the residual effects, such as headache, neck pain, dizziness, and memory problems, experienced by up to one-third of those who suffer from a single concussion. This cluster of symptoms, known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS), shares similarities with whiplash-associated disorder (WAD), both likely stemming from cervical instability.


Upper cervical instability, a condition not detectable through traditional MRI scans, emerges as a crucial element in the post-concussion puzzle. Enter the specialized realm of stress radiology technology—an innovative approach employed by Infinite Health IMC to identify and address these elusive ligament injuries.


At Infinite Health IMC, we specialize in the art of accurate diagnosis, particularly when it comes to non-disc spinal ligament injuries. Our primary focus revolves around employing advanced technologies, including special stress radiology, to conduct a comprehensive assessment that transcends the limitations of conventional methods.


The journey to recovery for many patients hinges on the accurate identification of these often overlooked injuries. Undiagnosed non-disc spinal ligament injuries are a pervasive concern, contributing to prolonged suffering and hindering the complete recovery of individuals with MTB. Driven by a belief that these injuries should not go undiagnosed, Infinite Health IMC stands as a beacon of hope for those seeking a more thorough evaluation.


To provide you with a glimpse into the transformative diagnostic process, we've included an illustrative image showcasing the technologies employed at Infinite Health IMC. This visual representation underscores our commitment to offering a holistic evaluation that considers the intricate aspects of spinal health.



As we wrap up our journey into the realm of spinal health and advanced diagnostics, we invite you to consider the importance of accurate diagnosis in ensuring the well-being of individuals recovering from MTB and concussions. At Infinite Health IMC, we not only recognize the significance of non-disc spinal ligament injuries but actively dedicate ourselves to unraveling their mysteries.
