We may use x-ray in this office to see into the body when the doctor feels the necessity of checking the condition and placement of the bones. For example, x-rays are used after an automobile accident to rule out fractures or major joint displacements. We have the x-ray equipment in our office so that our patients do not have to go elsewhere for the x-ray procedure. This way we can start treatment right away, having been satisfied that is is safe to do so.
Occasionally we may see other problems that would not have been detected due to an absence of symptoms.
