X-ray can be used by chiropractors either in a chiropractic office or through referral and helps eliminate guesswork by allowing chiropractors to understand the true alignment of the spine and plan treatment accordingly.
A range of different pains, functional impairments and muscle weaknesses can be alleviated with chiropractic realignment of the spine. These impairments may be due to stresses and strains on the various components of the spine including bones, muscles, ligaments, and discs.

Both of these conditions require consideration when developing a treatment plan.
Chiropractors can use x-ray for a range of purposes including:
