As good as our initial consultation and examination procedures are at finding where and why your problems are occurring, x rays are invaluable at showing exactly what the health of your spine is at this point in time. This increases our safety and effectiveness when working with you.
Whenever x rays are taken we will always schedule extra time on your next appointment to show you all the pictures and highlight any concerns that you need to be aware of. All this information is detailed in your report of findings folder.
Your x rays also help us to formulate your program of care with estimated time frames and visits required to not only get you well but to keep you that way.
We also try to avoid x raying infants and children unless an accident or trauma indicates otherwise.
