X-Ray / MRI / CAT SCAN
X-Rays are sometimes helpful in determining the severity of a patient's condition, which will be decided after the initial consultation and examination of the patient's injury. X-Ray radiology can often help diagnose many conditions, such as vertebral misalignments, degeneration, arthritis, fractures and scoliosis.
MRI's are often helpful for your chiropractor in diagnosing musculoskeletal conditions, disc injuries, ligament damage, cartilage damage, and can also be part of a follow up protocol to an X-Ray.
CAT scans are comonly helpful in diagnosing head trauma, swelling, and possible organ damage.
Needle EMG testing is an effective way of diagnosing any referral pain, pinched nerves, or nerve damage which is affecting the upper or lower extremity. These symptoms are usually characterized by numbness, tingling, or loss of strength in the arms or legs. Chiropractors works with many Neurologists and Orthopaedic surgeons in the area and can refer you for possible neurodiagnostic testing when clinically indicated.
Our North Wales/ Lansdale PA Chiropractic office has scripts available for many Radiology and MRI facilities in the area and can recommend the closest one to you when needed.
