What is a "Loss Motion Segment Integrity of the Spine" Injury?Spinal Cord Injury X-Ray

This is probably the worst soft tissue injury diagnosis you could have from an accident.  Essentially, it is a ligament instability injury. It affects the Neck and lower back (the rib cage protects the mid back).  Watch my video on it to learn more about soft tissue injuries and how to be on the lookout for this terrible diagnosis. In a severe soft tissue case (like an automobile accident), your vertebra may be impacted if the soft tissue found in your neck and lower back has been degraded to a certain point. This could occur in a rear-end collision that damages the spine's ligaments. Such damage can affect your vertebra’s proper range of motion. Blood can stagnate and cause poor blood supply in the spine, leading to degenerative conditions such as bone degeneration and early arthritis. You could also experience continual pain long after the accident. After an accident, you should seek medical attention and the advice of a knowledgeable injury attorney. Some doctors and injury lawyers routinely miss this medical diagnosis.

Why Are These Injuries (Ligament) Important for my California Personal Injury Case?

This diagnosis is so important I decided to devote an entire chapter to it in my latest book for doctors entitled "How to Effectively Document Your Patient's Personal Injury Case from A-Z" (available through this website if you are a California physician).  Apart from the importance and great weight, an AMA impairment can give a personal injury case; I would say this diagnosis if found and properly documented, is the next big value driver for any injury claim that involves the cervical and lumbar spine.  Remember, this diagnosis is generally not used on the thoracic spine because of rib cage protection. I learned of this diagnosis in my fifth year as a personal injury lawyer representing soft tissue injury clients in San Diego, California, because there is not much information on its power and use for a personal injury case.

If you are an injured patient or victim of an accident that has caused this type of injury, you should ensure your California Injury Accident Attorney understands how to communicate this diagnosis to the insurance effectively claims adjuster or jury (if necessary). If you are a physician who regularly treats soft-tissue type injuries, especially if you receive payment on a lien when a case settles, constituting a majority of your medical practice, you should be very familiar with this diagnosis and be extremely watchful for any signs or symptoms of it during your medical care!  This is one of the highest value drivers for any soft tissue type injury involving the cervical/thoracic spines, and, sadly, it is also one of the most overlooked diagnoses in the medical field when it comes to soft tissue injuries.
