Depending on the nature of your conditions, Dr. Begg may order an X-ray to be taken. Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) receive over 300 hours of X-ray training prior to graduating and thus are fully trained to identify subtle abnormalities of the spine as well as more serious pathologies.
Safe and Provide Valuable Information
X-rays are relatively safe and can reveal spinal regions under high stress, expose areas of degenerative change and can allow Dr. Begg to view the structure and general condition of the spine. This information will allow for a more accurate spinal analysis and a more individualized and effective treatment plan. X-rays are also useful to help to rule out the existence of more serious pathological processes such as spinal fractures, tumors, and infections.
