Alpine Chiropractic Clinic has an onsight x-ray facility. Since 1973 I have taken a special interest in the diagnosis of conditions through the study of radiology. After graduating in 1977 and passing the state board in Radiology, I have taken my own x-rays and have continually perfected my techniques since this time. In 1996 and 1997, I had the opportunity to work for two orthopedists, Dr. Randy Watson & Dr. Keith Swanson in South Lake Tahoe, California. As I continued in my private practice during this time, I was able to devote time to perfecting my techniques in taking x-rays of the extremities for the diagnosis of fractures. I use local Radiology doctors to confirm my findings if needed. I have found x-rays to be of great value in alignment analysis, degenerative problems and pathology. Although they have been a great help in explaining the reason for pain and assisting me in alignment, my policy is to only consider performing x-rays when absolutely needed. Finally, x-rays are made very affordable in our clinic.
