Spinal X-Rays

This office recognizes the diagnostic value of spinal x-rays. X-Rays, or spinal radiographs, offer great insight into the nature of a patient’s spinal condition(s).

How do Spinal X-Rays benefit the patient, and in turn enhance their care in your office?

It is better to KNOW rather than to GUESS.

Such films alert Dr. Bajakian if any underlying pathological conditions such as tumors, cancers, or other soft tissue diseases and/or disorders may be present, which may require medical attention in addition to Chiropractic treatment.

X-Rays can reveal previously undetected spinal deformities or conditions that might alter the method of Chiropractic treatment, or that may affect the length of care in our office.

Spinal films can also offer insight into how long a condition has been present in a patient’s spine, and show just how much degeneration has occurred due to the ongoing presence of the patient’s spinal Subluxations.

Spinal x-rays offer a complete understanding of the patient’s spinal condition. The information obtained from such spinal x-ray studies will assist in our determination as to which technique to use, but also in how much treatment the patient may require.

Dr. Bajakian always offers every patient a fair and honest opinion during his report of findings, of just how much he can help the patient in regaining their health and spinal x-rays help him do just that.

Is there anyone that you wouldn’t X-Ray?
Yes, of course. Any person who has rapidly growing body tissues such as a woman who is pregnant, or a young child would not routinely receive x-rays.

Is there any dangers from such x-rays?
Whenever you consider a medical or diagnostic procedure, you must consider the risks vs. the benefits of the information that is obtained from the testing. There is danger in taking aspirins, yet everyday so many people take them either for headaches or just because their medical doctor told them it would be a good “precautionary measure”.

Your body can safely handle a certain degree of radiation per year. You receive radiation in ways you would never imagine.

  • Flying from New York to California exposes each person on the plane to the equivalent of 10 chest x-rays of radiation once the plane leaves the ozone layer, and the radiation from the sun is able to penetrate the aluminum plane without any filtration.
  • Laying in the sun at the beach or in your back yard during just one afternoon, exposes you to the equivalent of one chest x-ray.
  • Even watching television exposes you to some radiation.

Despite all of this, your body is still able to effectively protect you from the mild to moderate exposures that were just mentioned.

Another safety measure that should be considered is that our office utilizes high quality x-ray screens which offer superb image quality, while limiting the amount of exposure to radiation by each patient.

When you consider the minimal risks of the spinal films vs. the potentially vast improvements in your health that you are capable of experiencing through a complete and properly designed Chiropractic treatment program, the choice is one that you can make knowing it is your best interest.

If you have any questions or concerns about spinal X-Rays please feel free to contact us.

When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities.
