At Rockwall Injury Rehab & Chiropractic the X-ray plays an important part in the practice of Chiropractic. It determines the condition of the bones of the human framework and the exact position of the spinal misalignment or subluxation. This knowledge is important in that it provides information that will lead to corrective measures.X-Ray Imaging Helps Diagnose Those…
Patients who have sustained a significant traumatic injury at any age.
Patients that have experienced any type of trauma (even a minor one) over the age of 50.
For most most patients over 70 years of age, especially if the patient's history and examination suggests a possible bone disease (such as arthritis).
Patients that have had long-standing back pain that has not responded or resolved with previous chiropractic health care.
At Rockwall Injury Rehab & Chiropractic we recognized that X-rays are essential in the diagnosis of a wide range of disorders. However, our peofessional staff understands that x-rays should not be done indiscriminately and will only recommend an imaging when believed to be absolutely necessary.Spinal Misalignment or Subluxation
The human spine consist of 24 movable bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae are connected and cushioned by intervertebral disc made of a special type of cartilage. Intervertebral disc provide spacing for the spinal nerves to exit between openings in the posterior joints of the spine. These openings are called intervertebral foramina. The disc along with the posterior joints of each vertebrae are responsible for the flexibility of the spine. Spinal misalignments called subluxations can cause changes in the function of the disc and posterior joints. These changes can alter the shape of the disc and the intervertebral foramina where the delicate spinal nerves exit. The result is irritation to the spinal nerves that send and receive information between the body and the brain.
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC).
Chiropractors work by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help remove interferences to your natural state of being healthy. A common interference to the nervous system is the 24 moving bones of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system. With improved spinal function there is often improved nervous function. A Doctor of Chiropractic can help remove interferences that may be impairing normal health. Since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many health conditions not normally thought of as "back" problems.
