X-Rays are a useful tool to allow Chiropractors to assess how longstanding your spinal problems are. Often spinal degeneration/arthritic changes can be clearly seen on x-ray as are obvious postural changes. X-rays allow Chiropractors to make sure there are no further or more serious conditions affecting you. They can make diagnosing your problem more comprehensive and accurate.
You will be assessed individually to ascertain whether you need x-rays. Usually if there is trauma associated with your problem then x-rays will be needed.
Your Chiropractor will refer you to our local radiologist who will bulk bill you for these x-rays using your Medicare card.
If you are pregnant or breast feeding, we will not x-ray you.
