One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in their patients. Heresco Chiropractic has x-rays (digital) available on site as a tool to assist in accurately diagnosing their patients.
There are two reasons that Heresco Chiropractic would recommended that x-rays be taken, prior to an adjustment. One reason is to rule out any potential pathology (such as a possible fracture or tumor). The second reason is that an x-ray provides a blue print of the spine, giving a clear direction of what specifically needs to be corrected.
