Why Does Dr. Goozdich Use Digital X-Rays?
Digital x-rays help Dr. Goozdich determine whether you have fractures or other spinal injuries that could be aggravated by chiropractic care. We also use this high-quality imaging to diagnose the causes of back pain and other spinal issues.
What Conditions Are Digital X-Rays Used For?
Our chiropractor uses digital x-rays to find fractures and dislocated joints. Other conditions that show up on a digital x-ray include the following:
- Signs of infection
- Spinal instability
The high-quality imaging helps the chiropractor determine where to make adjustments for the best effect. Not all patients require an x-ray before treatment and those who do receive x-rays have very low exposure to radiology. For example, if you have sore muscles and ligaments, an x-ray is not useful for this kind of treatment.
Advantages of In-Office Digital X-Rays
Dr. Goozdich appreciates the ability to perform x-rays in the office. This saves a lot of time waiting to receive a patient’s x-rays prior to treatment, meaning we can diagnose your back pain and other condition more quickly. For most spinal conditions, early detection and treatment leads to better outcomes and recovery of more functionality.
What Are X-rays?
At Tukee Lifestyle Chiropractic in Ahwatukee, AZ, our chiropractor uses x-rays to pass low energy radiation through your soft tissues and take an image showing bone density and irregularities. Organs appear in light gray and bones appear white on digital images.
Dr. Goozdich uses these images to identify possible underlying causes of the following conditions:
- Lower back pain
- Chronic headaches
- Tingling in hands and feet
- Neck pain
- Poor body posture
- Chronic fatigue
- Frequent illnesses
