This week Google is joining with others in celebrating one hundred and fifteen years since the discovery of x-ray by Prof. Wilhelm Roentgen of Wurzburg, Germany by creating a new “doodle” in it’s honour. “X”-Ray was so named because it was not known what these mysterious new rays were. Strange to consider that Chiropractic was also (re)discovered one hundred and fifteen years ago in 1895 and that the use of x-ray was destined to play an important role in the growth and development of the science of Chiropractic and is now a valuable diagnostic procedure used by many Chiropractors today.
X-ray helps determine the condition and position of spinal joints and bones of the human framework . It also shows degeneration, pathology, old injuries and possible fractures which is valuable information to the Chiropractor devising a “care”plan. X-rays are only ever taken by a Chiropractor when clinically indicated.
