Spinal Screening and X-Rays
While taking a patient’s full medical history, listening to symptoms and performing a physical examination are important diagnostic tools for a chiropractor, a spinal screening with X-rays are even more important. X-rays are the imaging tools that display the spinal structures. It’s a snapshot of what’s going on in the inside. Think about it. You wouldn’t expect your mechanic to identify why you’re having problems with your car’s engine without a taking a look under the hood. So, what does a spinal X-ray show? Spinal X-rays can reveal abnormal curves of the spine, dislocations, fractures, disc degeneration, bone spurs and more. In a spinal screening, X-rays can be taken of the cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral and sacrum regions. And with today’s technology, our chiropractor can immediately view the spinal screening X-ray on a computer screen. It’s essential to have X-rays if you’re suffering from back pain or neck pain.
