At Rhode Island’s Apponaug Chiropractic Center in Warwick, we now offer digital x-rays – an upgrade that helps us serve our patients more effectively and efficiently.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, an increasing number of chiropractors are using this digital technology, which has numerous benefits.
With digital x ray chiropractic treatment, the x-ray’s image is recorded and then stored via computer. This system replaces the old x-rays that were done with film. Digital x-rays offer improved image quality, better storage and allows Apponaug Chiropractic to send images to other doctors instantly, if that’s required.
Why Digital X-Ray Chiropractic Treatment?
Depending on your condition, Dr. Christopher Caliri may use x-rays to eliminate the possibility of more serious conditions. Digital X-rays are an effective diagnostic tool to determine the best treatment plans for patients.
Another benefit of digital is you can view your x-rays immediately after they are taken, giving you the chance to actually see your spine and better understand what may be causing your pain.
Digital x-rays promote a more accurate diagnosis via:
- Image magnification.
- The ability to crop images.
- Improved density and contrast.
- Better focus.
For a century, medical professionals relied on traditional film x-rays to accurately diagnose patients. But times, and technology, change. At Apponaug Chiropractic, we use digital x-rays to better serve our patients.
Whether you suffer from lower back pain, shoulder pain, painful knees or elbow pain, we can help put you on the road to recovery faster than ever thanks to digital x-rays.
Don’t depend on out-of-date technologies when it comes to your health and well-being. At Apponaug Chiropractic, we will work with you to ensure you receive the best possible care and treatments possible. That process starts with a proper diagnosis.
Our digital x-ray chiropractic system will help you learn why you are in pain and what can be done to get you back to living a pain-free and happy life.
Doctor Caliri works with patients on an individual basis to thoroughly review x-ray results and plan the proper course of treatment.
Digital x-rays also can offer reduced radiation exposure to patients. Digital systems provide a wider range than film-based systems. They typically require less radiation to produce an image compared to the old film-based system.
Digital x-rays are also better for the environment.
Film-based x-ray systems use chemicals and water during film processing. Digital x-ray systems do not require either. That can save hundreds or thousands of gallons of water per year.
Eliminating the usage of water and chemicals makes digital x-ray systems more environmentally friendly. The chemicals typically used in film development are toxic and can cause major environmental problems if they are not disposed of correctly.
