In our office we utilize both posture and x-rays to evaluate your spinal alignment. While a postural analysis can provide a knowledge of gross postural/spinal abnormalities (your outside alignment), only a radiographic evaluation can provide the details of your spine’s alignment and condition (your inside alignment).
Your spinal alignment, any possible spinal arthritis, and disc disease (S.A.D.D.) are both conditions of interest to your doctor. With the knowledge from analyzing your spinal x-rays, the doctor can determine a beginning clinical impression (diagnosis from any abnormalities found on your x-rays) and determine an initial program of corrective care.
