Should I Get Chiropractic Without X-rays?

You may have seen that some Chiropractors take x-rays while other don’t and wondered why they differ, and should I get Chiropractic Without X-rays? Read on to find out why x-rays are an important part of good upper cervical care and how it can be dangerous to get adjusted without them!

At Vitality Chiropractic we use x-rays to establish:

1. It is safe to adjust

2. How many appointments you need (based on research)

3. How to adjust you as accurately and specifically as possible

X-rays are extremely important to make sure that there are no underlying problems, such as anatomical differences since birth or old injuries you may have forgotten about.

The x-rays and the degenerative changes are also a scientific indicator of how long our care plan should be to ensure your problem is corrected

The x-rays also ensure the adjustments are accurate so that we can help to improve your condition as efficiently as possible.

Think of it like a mechanic checking your car, they might rub their hands on the car and have a good idea what is wrong, but they will only know for certain after opening the bonnet.

This is the same for Chiropractors, the x-rays allow an accurate diagnosis to be made. At Vitality Chiropractic we take a special set of x-rays, unique in Singapore, to ensure we get the diagnosis corrected as fast as possible and for results that last longer. These are specific to the upper neck and allow us to properly diagnose the Upper Cervical spine. this helps patients to faster results for problems such as migraines, headaches and vertigo.

The only exceptions would be for babies, young children or pregnant women. In these instances the adjustments are lighter and the cases are monitored more often.
