X-Rays + Chiropractic Care
What Are X-Rays?
X-rays refer to a type of radioactive imaging used by medical professionals to diagnose specific health concerns. Generally, our chiropractor uses it to look at your bones and the internal complications causing pain or discomfort throughout your body.
Since different tissues in the body appear different on the x-ray, our chiropractor uses the information and our knowledge of the human skeletal system to determine if the pain stems from a cracked bone, a herniated spine or other complications with your skeletal system. He also look at the muscles to determine when the problem stems from your muscular system rather than your skeletal system.
Why Our Chiropractor Uses an X-Ray
Dr. Stetzel works on improving the health of your body through natural movement, improving your mobility and ensuring that your spine functions appropriately. She offers spinal manipulation and adjustments to ensure that your body functions properly or to manage pain in certain areas of your body.
An x-ray is a basic tool used by chiropractors to evaluate and diagnose the cause of your pain. Since pain in your body, including your back and neck, stems from different situations, our chiropractor uses the diagnostic tool to determine the right course of action for your situation. In certain cases, we refer individuals to medical professionals to handle broken bones or certain health complications. In other situations, we develop a treatment plan based on the images and the concerns associated with your health. The reason Dr. Stetzel uses x-rays is the ability to see the problem and diagnose the underlying complications.
It is not necessary to live with physical discomfort and pain. At our chiropractic clinic, our professional chiropractor uses x-rays and appropriate diagnostic strategies to determine the cause of your discomfort and to develop a plan of action to address the problem.
