The musculoskeletal system is a complex network of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, which function together to provide smooth movement. A dysfunction in any part of this system can lead to pain, stiffness, poor range of motion and impairment of mobility. At ShoreLife Chiropractic & Wellness in Brick, NJ, we use digital x-rays to help diagnose spinal issues.
Understanding Digital X-Rays
Conventional x-rays have been used routinely since the 1930s, and have been of great benefit to health professionals of all kinds in providing information about hard structures within the body, such as the bones, joints and spine. Computerization has brought new advancement in the use of x-rays, due to the ability to enlarge digital images for closer inspection in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries. Your chiropractor in Brick uses digital x-ray images to enable a detailed look at spinal vertebrae and structures in the joints to help provide the best treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal problems.
Conditions Digital X-Rays Can Find
The digital capability of this type of x-ray allows the doctor to adjust the image easily, to make tiny fractures and minute signs of natural deterioration more visible. As a result, problems such as damaged discs, bone spurs and other hidden abnormalities can be more easily detected. Wear and tear on joints that are associated with arthritis can also be seen on these x-rays. Digital x-rays can also help to detect cancerous tumors or growths on the bony structures of the body that can affect normal function.
Digital X-Rays Help Your Chiropractor Provide More Accurate Care
Radiography equipment that creates a digital image that can be seen on a computer screen can be manipulated to provide a large, clearer and more detailed image of an area of the body. This capability allows your chiropractor to do the most accurate assessment of your spinal structures and allows the most accurate treatments for your needs.
