Chiropractors order or take x-rays to reveal internal biomechanical alterations and search for possible underlying diseases or disorders of the spine or extremities such as spinal disc or facet degeneration, space occupying lesions, arthritis, congenital or abnormal anomalies, disc disorders, bone spurs, benign conditions, and metastatic conditions.
