If you’re on a limited budget and have a limited insurance policy, you may not want to hear that you may need X-rays or a CT, MRI or ultrasound test from your chiropractor. Keep reading because you’ll soon understand the reasons behind the imaging studies.
Here’s a list of four reasons why your chiropractor often needs these tests:
Every condition does not need imaging studies, but they are essential for certain conditions. For example, if you hurt your elbow by hitting it on a desk, you probably won’t need imaging studies. However, if you have pain in your low back along with bowel and bladder incontinence, your chiropractor will refer you to the hospital emergency room where they will take plenty of imaging studies to determine what’s wrong.
If you’re concerned about funds to get these studies, discuss it with Arlington chiropractor Dr.Ernst. He knows what’s available in your area as extra sources of funding for important medical tests.
