X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we send people out for xrays if it is indicated in the exam. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.

Report of Findings

Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your provider will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What will my treatment cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your test results, your provider will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. your provider will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
