Why do I need an X-ray? The simple answer is that if we don’t look and know for sure, then we are guessing and we will not guess about your health. With digital technology, your exposure is very minimal and safe. X-rays allow us to look for cancers, tumors, fractures and the detrimental effects subluxation has on your spinal health. Misalignment or subluxation leads to degenerative changes in the spine like arthritis, osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, degenerative disc disease, bone spurs, spinal decay, bulging discs and more. When we can identify those changes, we have a better idea of how long it might take to repair and restore function. This is a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to identifying exactly what your challenge is and how we can help your body heal itself.
