MOTION STUDY X-RAYS AT ACHIEVE HEALTH & WELLNESS
Have you ever found yourself experiencing back pain, but are unable to pinpoint exactly where the pain was coming from? In situations like these, Achieve Health and Wellness recommends having a motion study x-ray done. Taking x-rays in motion is much simpler than you might think, and this technology provides a number of valuable benefits that static x-rays often don't. We've helped many patients in the Bolingbrook area heal from injuries and reduce physical wear, tear, and pain through motion x-rays. We hope we can help you, too.
Why Take Motion Study X-Rays?
You might not pay much attention to the way you move on a day-to-day basis, but your posture, gait, and other ways you move all matter when it comes to your health. When your body is aligned correctly and your motions are ergonomic, you're less likely to experience strains, aches, and pains as time goes on. Unfortunately, most people don't move in a way that is ergonomically ideal, and this increases their risk of being injured or experiencing chronic pain in the future. Taking motion x-rays allows us to study your gait and other aspects of your movement to identify bad habits that could cause problems.
Motion study x-rays can also help you recover more quickly after an injury. Static x-rays are not always useful for determining which of your ligaments or tendons are injured, for example, or for determining the degree of an injury. Digital motion x-rays are much more revealing when it comes to diagnosing sprains, strains, and problems with the spine and joints. Understanding our patients' injuries helps us administer chiropractic care more effectively and put together better recovery plans for our patients.
How Motion Study X-Rays Can Help You
Motion x-rays have a great deal of potential in physical therapy applications, since they allow a chiropractor to study a patient's injuries, gait, and range of motion in detail. Our philosophy is that prevention is better than cure, so we think motion x-rays can be a good idea for healthy people too. Taking precautions to walk, bend, and twist in a spine-friendly way will help you stay active and pain-free all your life.
