Why do you take X-rays
Many of my patients and perspective patients ask why I take x-rays?
In a two part answer:
#1 – we need to see exactly how the vertebra is misplaced, so we can correct the position in a very specific manner.
#2 – patients walk into chiropractors offices daily that need help after a minor incident, wether it was yesterday, 10 days ago, or 3 years ago. This patient had fallen wrong on his trampoline and had neck pain for 9 days (not all that intense). Please look at the x-rays and let me know if he’s glad the chiropractor wanted to be very conservative, specific with the correction, and take the patients safety seriously.
Upon further inspection, this patient is withing 2-3mm of a broken neck and being completely paralyzed from the shoulders down.
Medical intervention was needed. If the chiropractor had given into the patient that said “Just Crack It, Doc”, then the outcome would have been catastrophic.
Conservative Chiropractic Care in Richmond Hill Ga is the way to go. Don’t settle for “Just Crack It”.
