Xray or MRI?


X-rays can be used to reveal the internal structure of the body mainly your bones. We find these pictures quite helpful:

  • Provide a structural record of your spine
  • Rule out cancer, disease or other pathologies
  • Locate fractures or other signs of trauma
  • Identify evidence of long term spinal decay
  • Confirm other examination findings
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
MRI's can be used to reveal the soft tissue in the human body and are also helpful when:

  • Patient's are not responding to care
  • Infections are possible
  • A disk is suspected to be causing a patient's symptoms
  • Allows us to see the condition of the disks
