We go to a great deal of trouble to capture X-Rays just the way Chiropractors want them captured. Chiropractors have particular demands regarding the way their images should be captured, including specific foot placement for pelvis films and specialised methods of capturing static and functional images of the spine. We have consulted extensively with Chiropractors to develop protocols that satisfy their desire for precision as well as minimising radiation dose.
Spinal X-Rays are frequently used by Chiropractors to guide their treatment choices.
We are able to capture full spine films “stitched”. Which means your Chiropractor sees the full functional picture of your spine, including any curves and imbalances. The individual parts of the spine are provided, so that no detail is lost, allowing for a precise understanding of the quality of the spinal joints and disc spaces.
The spine is made up of 24 vertebrae. We know how to capture each region of the spine the way your Chiropractor prefers. We cater to the individual protocols and preferences of each of our Chiropractic referrers.
We Also X-Ray Peripheral Joints
Many X-Ray facilities refuse to bulk bill hands, feet, elbows or knees for Chiropractors, and charge patients a fee. We do not. We bulk bill all X-Rays referred by Chiropractors.
