X-Ray

 

xray.jpg X-rays are often taken on most patients to give the doctor an inside look at what is going on with the bone structure of the entire spine and surrounding skeletal structure. From this x-ray, the doctor can tell your current spine angles as well as any potential further issues including the potential for additional information such as an MRI.

How could I have imagined what was in store for me the morning I got out of bed noticing a slight discomfort in my left buttock. Over the course of the day it didn't go away as I had hoped but also seemed no worse so I didn't dwell on it. Thinking I had slept in some position to bring it on, I hoped the next nights rest would make it go away. The second morning, the discomfort was more distinct, with slight pain down my leg so I decided to see the chiropractor who has helped me with previous back pain problems. Dr. Reilly did an assessment through various bending, stretching and reaching exercises and said the problem was not in my left leg but in the lower back, (L-5 disc) which is fairly common and treatable. I began regular chiropractic treatments including electro-stimulation and adjustments, later adding decompression traction. The pain down my leg progressed steadily as a particular nerve became severely affected. Sitting was nearly impossible leading Dr. Reilly to do an x-ray which showed a more difficult problem with the disc. He advised me to see my family doctor. Along with continued chiropractor treatments including now a cold laser, my family physician ordered pain medication and an MRI. We decided the problem could be corrected without surgery, so we reached out to a Carolina Spine specialist for further expertise. With epidural steroid injections and on-going chiropractic work, this team approach has been very beneficial and I am feeling almost "all the way back". I commend Dr. Reilly for his warm, caring professional work throughout. It is fortunate for people in the Fairview area that we can partake of his services and rely on his expert advice.
