We take X-rays only if it is medically necessary. The X-rays reveal the internal structure and alignment of the spine. We are concerned about underlying disease processes and disorders of the spine such as degenerative disc and joint disease, arthritis of the spine, congenital anomalies, bone spurs, disc disorders, tumors, and spinal curvature. X-rays provide a blueprint for correcting the spine back to an aligned position. The precise X-rays taken in our office are necessary to make the measurements used in the vectored analysis necessary to correct the spinal misalignment. We use principles of engineering, mathematics, and physics to realign spines, thus making both before and after X-rays an essential part of our procedures. Without X-rays there is no way to know exactly what the spine looks like, and we don’t want to guess with your health.
