X-Ray Facilities

Looking through the pain

When X-rays are necessary we have you covered here at Duncraig Chiropractic. We can investigate your spine straight away with digital X-ray facilities located onsite. This avoids any delays referring you to an outside radiology clinic and getting you started with your treatment sooner. This is something that your smaller micro-clinics can’t offer you.

Both visible light and X-rays consist of photon particles conveyed over electromagnetic energy. When carefully controlled, this energy can be used to reveal the internal structure of the body. We find these pictures quite helpful:

  • Provide a structural record of your spine
  • Locate fractures or other signs of trauma
  • Identify evidence of long term spinal degeneration
  • Confirm other examination findings

Some more info

Interestingly, X-rays were discovered soon after the first chiropractic adjustment in 1895. Wilhelm Roentgen, a German physics professor, was experimenting with cathode ray tubes and discovered that an object across the room began to glow. Much to his surprise, when he placed his hand between the tube and the glowing barium screen, he was able to see the bones of his hand.

Wilhelm Roentgen won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901 for the discovery of the X-ray.

From those crude beginnings over a century ago, both chiropractic and X-ray imaging have come a long way. Today, the chiropractic profession is a leader in the reduction of X-ray exposure and patient safety.
