Why X-rays?

Man getting an X-ray

Rather than lying down, we want X-ray views showing your body in a weight-bearing position.

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

If we believe an X-ray will be beneficial to your care, we will refer you to a local radiographer. We generally refer patients to locations where bulk billing is accepted however, you are free to get an X-ray wherever you chose. You can specify your preferences in your new patient paperwork.
