The usefulness of an x-ray in assisting the doctor in both diagnosing and adjusting the subluxation is apparent. The benefits of x-ray however, must always be weighed against the risks of exposure to radiation. For this reason, pregnant women are often excluded from x-ray examination since the fetus is more sensitive to exposure. In most cases, the benefits of the x-ray outweigh the small risks. We use the latest high frequency x-ray machine to reduce exposure and protect you as much as technology allows. Consult your doctor of chiropractic about your individual health concerns and information that was detected in your x-ray examination. When patients understand their health problems and the objectives of the chiropractor, they respond more quickly to care.
