Motion Study X-Ray
Motion Study X-Ray in Pleasanton, CA
At the Pleasant Chiropractor, there’s no need to get a referral out of office to get x-rays. We have an in-house digital motion study x-ray that allows us to take the closer look we need to in order to know how to treat you. What is a motion study x-ray you ask? We use an advanced, state-of-the-art x-ray machine that takes a series of picture of your neck and spine in motion rather than a single picture. This technology can detect injuries that only appear when you move! This is extremely helpful for patients that report an increase in pain during physical activity. We can use our motion study x-ray to see exactly what is going on and causing the pain or discomfort.
What are the benefits of a motion study x-ray?
As we mentioned before, traditional x-ray machines provide a still image. Same with CT’s and MRI’s. They only provide a static picture. To truly understand the source of a patient’s pain, we have to dig deeper. Most chiropractic offices only take traditional x-rays, leaving gaps in a treatment plan that potentially can prolong care. Using a motion study x-ray, we are able to identify and get specific measurements of each problem area. We can test your range of motion, note when pain first appears, and truly develop a comprehensive treatment plan to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
