FAQs

I just want an adjustment. Do I need x-rays ?

In most cases, diagnostic x-rays are a critical component of a thorough chiropractic evaluation to provide the most effective and safe care. The doctors at Dickson Chiropractic are committed to providing more than just pain relief, they understand the value in correcting the CAUSE of the pain. To see is to know, and when it comes to your care we won’t guess. During your first visit to our office, our doctors will perform a personal consultation and exam in order to determine the source of any pain you may be experiencing. Your diagnostic x-rays will include motion study views. Each patient’s report of findings includes an individualized plan of care to meet their specific needs.
