Digital Radiography: A Chiropractor’s Best Friend for Determining Treatment
A visit to the chiropractor is a smart choice if you’ve been suffering from lower back pain, a herniated disc, or sciatic pain. And while your chiropractor’s office might be an informal, comfortable environment, it’s important to remember that there are still some clinical steps to take before you can expect to experience relief. For example, don’t be surprised if you’re set up for an X-ray before getting an adjustment.
Digital radiography is essential to diagnosis and chiropractic treatment. It’s a sound first step in patient care that’s built into many advanced treatment programs – including Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP). In addition to feeling your spine, a chiropractor will want to view radiological imaging to visually spot any conditions or misalignments.
A proper diagnosis is the first step to improving your health. The CBP-trained chiropractors at Posture Works in Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA are experts in diagnosing a variety of spinal problems. Patients trust us to provide the gold standard in chiropractic care, and it all starts with an X-ray.
Why X-rays are critical to quality chiropractic
Posture Works is proud to offer the only fully digital radiography center in the San Francisco region, with biomechanical and Corrective Potential X-Ray™ capabilities. We take pride in being able to show patients the entirety of their spine, so they can understand how gravity is affecting the bones, discs, and joints therein.
A thorough analysis of the spine allows chiropractors to compare its structural integrity to objective standards. Your chiropractor will determine where the weakness in the spine lies as well. Radiological imaging can spot any of the following:
- Musculoskeletal conditions;
This is the first part of a thorough analysis of your health. Your chiropractor will also discuss your symptoms with you and review your medical history, comparing findings against the radiological data. Once the problem has been identified, you can begin to consider treatment options. A chiropractor will prescribe corrective care plans that are supported by research and their findings of your spine.
Chiropractic treatment plans
Having a state-of-the-art radiography system isn’t just useful for diagnostics. It’s also helpful to view the spine in the midst of the treatment plan. That way your chiropractor can see if you’re making progress. If not, your chiropractor may alter the treatment plan to better adapt it. Chiropractic treatment is focused on enhancing each individual’s health. Remember, when it comes to your spine, there’s no one-size-fits-all plan. A tailored approach is always going to offer better results than a generic one. X-rays are the key to unlocking an individualized treatment plan.
