X-Rays are an essential to the chiropractic care process. When you make your first appointment with Wellness Plus, you will be asked to have X-Rays taken. These will provide an inside look at problems that you may be facing.
X-Rays are electromagnetic waves that travel through the body to project an internal image on corresponding slides. This is why those who are pregnant or may be pregnant should not have X-Rays taken. When a client has their X-Rays, a chiropractor can use them to pinpoint the trouble areas within the body.
These medical technologies have provided insight into alignment of the spine for years, and are essential to the chiropractic process. If you believe chiropractic will benefit you or someone you know, make an appointment with Wellness Plus today and have your initial appointment with X-Rays today!
How Chiropractic care can help your TMJ
Temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMJ is a group of disorders that afflict the joint which connects the jaw and skull. If you are experiencing pain in the jaw below, behind, or near your ear, it could be subject to TMJ. This pain could impair your ability to eat and talk, as well as cause you to experience dizziness, pain, and headaches. After being seen by a medical professional and diagnosed with TMJ, chiropractors can help you manage the disorder through chiropractic.
Chiropractic works to alleviate the pressure placed on joints and nerves within the body, therefore can assist with pain related to TMJ. Once a joint is properly aligned, the nerve will no longer be pinched and irritated. Seeing as misalignments can happen continuously throughout a lifetime, it is beneficial to receive chiropractic care routinely along with the care from your general practitioner.
Wellness Plus provides quality, individualized, care to our clients. We work alongside your schedules in order to ensure you are receiving the treatment appropriate for your ailments. TMJ can be managed, and we are here to help you do just that! If you are experiencing pain in your jaw, or anywhere else for that matter, call us today and schedule a time for your first appointment and X-rays.
