One of the most important aspects of Chiropractic Treatment is diagnostics or being able to determine the source and extent of a particular chronic condition. At AICA Marietta, our Chiropractors have direct access to a variety of imaging devices that allow them to review each patient’s musculoskeletal system and determine the most appropriate treatment plan. One specific imaging device often used by our Marietta Chiropractors is a CT scan.
CT scans are continuously growing in use throughout the United States with over 70 million procedures performed each year. This particular diagnostic device takes images of internal structures that are otherwise blocked when using traditional X-rays. With this, our Marietta Chiropractors are able to develop a 3D image of a patient’s injury or chronic condition – giving them the information they need to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
A few of the health benefits associated with CT Scans include:
Most of our Chiropractic patients do not require CT Scans to diagnose and treat their condition. Our Marietta Chiropractors are usually able to determine how each patient’s musculoskeletal system is performing without needing to use an imaging device.
CT scans are only recommended when handling severe cases that present serious health concerns and require immediate treatment, such as osteoporosis or spinal stenosis.
