One of the most heavily relied on diagnostic techniques in chiropractic care is the X-ray. This diagnostic technique is often thought of as antiquated, with many other imaging processes being developed since the X-ray that provide us with a deeper understanding of the body’s internal layout. However, these imaging processes are all confounded in the use of surgery and invasive procedures to get that far inside the body.

Because chiropractic care uses spinal manipulation and other techniques that involve movement of skeletal components with the hands or with the use of the instrument, an X-ray can show a chiropractor exactly what is happening in the body in terms of alignment and structure. The X-ray conveys some other information too, such as the presence of scar tissue or arthritis in a given area, both occurrences that need to be considered when forming some sort of treatment pathway.
