Unlike many practitioners that use signs and symptoms to diagnose a condition that you may have, an X-ray doesnt give an opinion. It just shows clear evidence of the facts of your skeletal anatomy. “To see is to know…not to see is to guess”.

X-rays provide a blueprint of evidence on the condition and alignment of your spine, detailing the amount of damage or degeneration and how long it has likely been present.  This helps clarify what exactly is required to correct your issues and make your adjustments safer and more precise. It can also help rule out previously misdiagnosed conditions not previously seen.  

Most of us think of x-rays being used to diagnose fractures (broken bones) and other bone conditions like osteoporosis. However, at ACH we specialise in analysing the vertical and horizontal alignment, postural curve discrepancies and of course, determining absolute safety when assessing each joint for manipulation therapy. 

Unseen anomalies that cannot be adjusted, can only be identified with x-rays. 

Often anomalies and contraindications to care are asymptomatic, meaning that they have no tell-tale signs or symptoms. Having an X-ray on hand means we can see these structural changes and make the appropriate modifications.

Why guess when you can know.  X-rays are perfect to assess the condition of the body’s structural foundation – AKA The spine & pelvis. There is no substitute for having a visual representation of the structure and exactly what condition it is in.

After a thorough consultation and examination, we use our clinical expertise to determine the need for an x-ray in your specific case.  If indicated, we will have a discussion which always requires your consent before imaging can occur.  The amount of radiation received during imaging is minimal. Our x-ray unit is the most advanced in radiographic technology available in 2024. (Installed brand new Jan’ 2024).

Imaging will only be considered where clinically justified, in line with current legislation and guidelines.
