While most patients do not require X-rays in our office, it is an important tool to have available. Dr. Hall uses X-ray to help diagnose and help guide treatment for many ailments such as arthritis. X-ray can also be an important part of assessing and documenting injuries following severe trauma such as automobile accidents. Dr. Hall also has affiliations with MRI and CT facilities if more in-depth imaging is needed.
Chiropractors Often Utilize X-ray Studies
Based on the nature of your condition as well as a number of other factors, x-ray studies of your spine or injured body part may be indicated. Doctors of chiropractic receive over 300 hours of x-ray studies in college prior to graduating and thus are fully trained to take radiographs and identify subtle abnormalities of the spine as well as more serious pathologies.
