Spinal x-rays are an invaluable tool that helps your Chiropractor deliver optimal and contemporary chiropractic care. This blue-print to your spine helps your chiropractor determine two things:
- How long your problem has been there.
- How best to adjust your spine.
To maximize the quality of your care, Kehoe Family Chiropractic has an onsite digital x-ray suite and your x-rays will always be taken by your Chiropractor and not a tech.
If you currently have x-rays, MRIs or other imaging, we welcome you to bring those images or their reports for your chiropractor to evaluate. If you are pregnant x-rays will not be taken on your first visit. An x-ray evaluation will be post-poned until after the birth of your child. It is rare for the doctors at Kehoe Family Chiropractic to x-ray infants or toddlers. Most young children under preventative care are rarely x-rayed, unless there are signs of abnormal spinal curvatures observed or they have suffered physical trauma. Your chiropractor will discuss these findings with you, so you can make an educated decision for your child.
The full spine x-rays taken at Kehoe Family Chiropractic are particular to the Gonstead system of Chiropractic. X-rays are a practical, safe and inexpensive way to determine the health of the spine and the best approach to adjusting it.
Kehoe Family Chiropractic uses the latest in digital x-ray technology. This keeps your radiation exposure extremely low and allows the doctors to get a very accurate and clear images of your spine.
