Dr. Teri Tran, DC's Expert Contributions
It really does depend on the patient's injury. Sometimes X-Rays are required. Just like a dentist, taking a set of X-Rays allows us to see anything under the gums or muscles that may be contributing further for a patient's problem. Also allowing us to see any underlying problems before it manifests into an injury. It is very common practice to have an initial set of X-Rays taken if you are new to a doctor's practice. READ MORE

Chiropractic medicine is a form of alternative medicine that mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments, manipulation, and other techniques to manage patients’ health concerns, such as neck pain, back pain, and other joint pain like those to the shoulders and ankles. They aim to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life, by properly aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure and enabling the body to heal itself without medication or surgery.
