Why We Take X-Rays On Every Patient With Neck Pain | Chiropractor in Newport Beach, CA
Priestly Family Chiropractic will NOT guess with your health. We take x-rays on patients with neck pain because it’s important for us to know what is truly going on with your spine and nervous system before adjusting your neck. We look for degeneration, decrease in space, arthritis and more, which we cannot be done without x-rays. There are eight pairs of cervical nerves that exit each of the vertebrae in your neck. These nerves travel down the neck, through the shoulder and arm down into your hands and fingers. By taking thorough x-rays, we are able to find out what is truly going on with those nerves, which may be causing numbness and tingling in your arms and hands and even causing headaches and difficulty sleeping. The nervous system is the master system of your body which controls everything, so give us a call today to get your checked out!
