When you are dealing with spinal issues, your main goal is to find relief. If you are like so many others, you will do anything to avoid invasive, painful surgery. When medication and physical therapy treatments fail, sessions with a chiropractor could make a world of difference for you. Pain management, greater mobility, and an improved quality of life are the goal of spinal adjustments. Thanks to new technology, you can have even more effective results when your chiropractor uses digital x-rays.
What are Digital X-Rays?
Digital x-rays are the latest in advanced technology, using low doses of radiation while providing your chiropractor with a high-resolution image. Your chiropractor will have precision images that have a greater accuracy, providing instant feedback before moving forward with any spinal adjustments. The spine is a delicate and intricate part of the body. You want to ensure that your chiropractor is moving in the right direction when adjustments are being made. Digital x-rays are an insurance policy for you, keeping your chiropractor better informed when it is time to take action.
Why Choose to Take Digital X-Rays Before Adjustments?
Many chiropractors will take digital x-rays to have a baseline before making any adjustments. It is important to rule out any underlying factors, such as a bone fracture or tumor that are causing you discomfort. Most importantly, your chiropractor wants to be able to pinpoint the exact location for adjustments. If you have been the victim of any trauma, you are at risk for infection, or if you are over 65, your chiropractor is likely to use digital x-rays as a rule of thumb. Your chiropractor may opt for digital x-rays if you have exhausted all other treatment alternatives, and nothing has worked, especially if you have been suffering from chronic pain for a long period. The main goal is to treat you with the proper adjustment to give you relief. Digital x-rays will help your chiropractor to choose the best course of action for your spinal adjustments.
Find Out How Digital X-Rays Can Make a Difference
Ask your chiropractor about the use of digital x-rays and possible recommendations for spinal adjustments. Any additional steps you can take to make progress with your spinal discomfort could be recommended besides digital x-rays. Lifestyle changes, massage therapy, and acupuncture are just some of the possible other recommendations that your chiropractor could make. Spinal pain can be frustrating, but digital x-rays make it possible to have a better quality of life.
