29 – Do I Need An X-ray Scan
Imaging (x-rays, MRI, CT) can be helpful, but they don’t tell the whole story.
Because how your joints and muscles are working, is usually more important than how much ‘wear and tear’ there is.
So whilst things like x-ray can help with the diagnostic picture, the things to focus on are getting the joints moving more freely, and helping the muscles fire correctly (chiropractic is very useful for both of those).
* The first thing though, is always to rule out anything more serious, which x-rays and scans are also used for.
