Q: Does chiropractic care require an X-ray?
A: X-rays can play an important role in your diagnosis. An X-ray may be taken when the need has been determined following a case history and physical examination. Chiropractors receive 360 hours of education in radiology that cover a full range of topics, from protection and X-ray interpretation to determining various diagnoses. In every province, governments recognize the training of chiropractors in using and interpreting X-ray data.
