X-Rays, A Peek Inside Your Spine
We use an onsite digital x-ray machine to diagnose chiropractic conditions at Club West Chiropractic. We think it is very important to see what we are dealing with on the inside before treating the outside. Severe degeneration such as decreased disc space and bone spurring seen on an x-ray changes the way we treat, and the length it takes to start seeing results. We are honest with our patients about the time we believe it is going to take to start seeing results. Without the use of x-rays one would have to guess what is going on inside, and it is not in the patients best interest to guess on their health. X-rays can tell us a lot about your spine. It can tell us how much wear and tear you have on your spine. Spinal degeneration also known as “wear and tear” complicates your case and often times takes more treatments stacked on top of each other to start resolving the problem. The x-rays will also tell us the exact segments that are shifted out of alignment, and helps us specifically locate your problems areas. Sometimes the problem areas are not your areas of pain. The pain often times comes from compensating for the real problem area. With out the x-ray we would not be able to locate the real underlying problem. X-rays also give us an insight to your posture and help us design a unique physical rehabilitation plan to help correct poor posture.
