If you’re searching for lasting relief from your pain, Dr. Tom Martin at Assured Health Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Media, PA, offers chiropractic x-rays to ensure the most optimal results.

Guide to Chiropractic X-Rays

X-rays are used in many fields for many purposes, but many people are surprised to learn that they are used by chiropractors. Learn the purpose of chiropractic x-rays and how they can benefit you in the guide below from Dr. Martin and the team at Assured Health Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Media, PA.

Why Do Chiropractors Use X-Rays?

Chiropractors aim to find the underlying cause of a patient’s pain and address it. They use information gathered from the patient as well as a comprehensive assessment to help make this happen. However, it can still be a guessing game.

As chiropractors want to provide you with lasting relief, guessing isn’t desired. Instead, they use x-rays when the underlying issue isn’t obvious. This tool gives them a comprehensive look at the skeletal system to determine where the issue actually lies.

What Types of Issues Can X-Rays Help the Chiropractor Diagnose?

X-rays are most well-known for diagnosing broken bones, but that is certainly not the only chiropractic use for them. They can also help chiropractors diagnose the following and more:

  • Unhealed spinal fractures
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Scoliosis
  • Misalignment of the spine, shoulder, or pelvic area
  • Spinal trauma
  • Forward head posture
  • Kyphosis
  • Spondyloarthritis

They can also be used to monitor many conditions, such as scoliosis and kyphosis. This helps determine if treatment needs to be adjusted or if additional measures need to be added.

Benefits for Patients

Not every patient will need an x-ray, but x-rays can be extremely beneficial in many treatment plans. The biggest benefit by far is that they help chiropractors determine an accurate diagnosis and take out the guesswork, which leads to additional benefits, such as the following.

  • It ensures that chiropractors are providing adjustments to the specific areas in need.
  • It helps chiropractors provide the most effective additional treatment techniques for the patient’s needs.
  • It increases the likelihood of comprehensive and lasting healing.
  • It helps you achieve that healing in less time, as treatment can be so targeted.
