X-Rays

X-rays are a form of invisible, high-frequency electromagnetic radiation.

Why Would a X-Ray Be Needed?

The chiropractor may need to take X-Rays if there is any question of abnormality in your spine or joints. A review of your X-Rays will guide your chiropractor in determining an effective treatment plan.

Chiropractic treatment relies on manipulations of the spine and neck to realign the spinal column, and is used to treat ailments like neck pain, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and headaches. In certain cases your chiropractor relies on X-Rays to determine the appropriate chiropractic treatment. For the care of patients that may have degenerative joint disease, osteoporosis, spinal disease, significant traumatic injury at any age, or any other debilitating condition. The chiropractor must be fully aware of any debilitating conditions before treatment is started in order to properly administer a treatment plan that will be successful.

X-Rays of the spine will be made only when there are spine-related symptoms. Low-back pain is the most common reason for X-Raying the spine. Unless there has been an injury serious enough to tear ligaments or cause a fracture, initial X-Rays will normally be limited to just two views – one from the front and one from the side. Oblique views made from different angles greatly increase radiation exposure and are rarely needed.
