Chiropractors also take an x-ray when they see it’s necessary to do so. Some use it for documentation, especially if the patient may have fracture bones. Some chiropractors would base their treatment on correcting the spine back to its original alignment through the x-rays results. Al though in most cases, an x-ray is not needed and a chiropractor can do spine manipulation without it when they observed there’s no bone fractures in their patients.
