Back to Basics Chiropractic also offers instantaneous digital x-ray services with our on-site radiographic equipment. Our state-of-the-art technology allows for high-resolution digital images to be taken during consultation times to scan for injury, degenerative changes or general spinal screenings. These images can be viewed immediately, and recorded to disc for our patients to take home. Our x-ray views are bulk-billed through Medicare for all patients.
At Back to Basics Chiropractic, we believe strongly in creating a co-operative relationship between the patient and practitioner. Each patient is thoroughly educated on their specific condition and the avenues available to them.
