Will I have to have x-rays to receive care?

The far majority of our patients either present with imaging studies [MRI, CT Scans] or we perform X-rays and or diagnostic ultrasound imaging on site*.  
X-rays offer a look at the structure of the spine. They are valuable in the evaluation of your spine. After the clinical examination, x-rays may be required to rule out any abnormalities that may need special attention.
[*Some insurance carriers require that imaging studies be performed at their participating sites, in order for the imaging studies be covered by insurance. In those cases, at the patient's request, we send them out to the participating imaging facilities.]
