Imaging procedures, in particular plain film radiography are an integral part of Chiropractors diagnostic procedures. Chiropractors as a professional group are the only health care profession that equips its members at an undergraduate level to walk out of the class room on graduation and into a private practice, qualified to obtain a license to take plain film x-rays and the training to interpret them. From a public health and safety perspective spinal radiographs taken by Chiropractors generally produce a lower absorbed dose compared to standard medical radiographs because of the unique Chiropractic methodology. This includes:
typical focal film distance of 200 centimetres. This utilizes the
inverse square law resulting in a lower patient absorbed dose as well as
reduced magnification, less distortion and improved resolution of the
The use of a compression band to reduce scatter radiation and contact gonadal shielding secured to the compression band.
use of specialised copper-plus-aluminium density equalizing filters
(Bauer/Nolan) that remove lower energy photons. These are mounted on the
tube housing and filter the x-ray beam prior to it reaching the
Higher KVp and lower mAs techniques. When combined with
either analogue rare earth screens/film combinations or more recently
with digital cassettes, these techniques deliver high quality images
with a patient dose that is As Low As Reasonably Achievable, ALARA.
Qualytech or other patient measurement devices to ensure correct exposure factors.
Erect patient positioning which allows for an increased focal film distance for all spinal radiographs.
policy of our practice is that all plain film radiographs are digitally

Being from Bowmanville, it frustrates me to think how much time I wasted before going to SpineWise my back pain. I had tried everything from pain medicines, OTC pills to stretching exercise but nothing seemed to be working. Finally with treatment from Spinewise, the pain and related problems subsided in record time. I have been enjoying my pain free life since the time I started my treatment. From daily chores to frequent business travels, these physical activities doesn’t scare me anymore. What attracts me the most is that the treatment is not only extremely effective but I was able to get off all those pain pills!
My sciatica pain was so annoying. I could not walk, run or just sit at my office chair. It was such a nightmare. Then a friend of mine recommended Spinewise, so off I went. Dr. Sharda began treatment with some newer technologies that I’d never seen before. Dear Lord…..thanks for that technology! Within a few weeks my sciatica had resolved and I’m back in office…working…travelling and doing all the chores. Thanks SpineWise!
I loved driving and I am an Uber driver by profession. But it isn’t easy to drive around with that killer headache tearing your head apart. I am putting my passengers and myself at risk. This is unprofessional and selfish…..I mean how could I put my passengers at risk….I cannot focus…my eyes turn red…the skull keeps thumping….this is so bad. One of my passengers told me to check out SpineWise. I am already on so many pills…how’s it going to change anyways…Strange and surprising…in just three sessions at the clinic and my headaches have lessened and I’m on way less pills . The whole team there is just great!
I had a severe neck and shoulder pain, soon after I had a whiplash injury from a minor accident. My husband had been going to SpineWise and had brought me here. I underwent a very thourough assessment and x-rays. All information was conveyed to my insurance company and lawyer. The methods they use to treat whiplash are gentle and effective thanks to their technologies. Within a few weeks, my pain was gone! Thank you for the great care and support I receive.
Just a few weeks back, my wife lost her balance and collapsed. She kept complaining about dizziness and whirling sensation. We thought she was having a heart attack but the hospital cleared her of that. A colleague from work referred us to Dr Sharda at SpineWise. After some x-rays and other tests they were able to determine that she had vertigo and it was coming from her neck. . With just a few adjustments and absolutely no pill, her vertigo is gone!
I work at one of those killer desk jobs…I sit all day…9 hours straight. I was getting muscle aches and pains everywhere! I blamed it all on my lack of exercise. It was getting really bad so I went to my MD who diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. I was always tired and yet I couldn’t sleep at night because of the pain. I found SpineWise in my online research and it sounded like they knew what they were doing, so I went. Long story short, they do know what they are doing. Thank you SpineWise!
Heel spurs were making walking a chore. I could hardly walk and being in retail, I was in a bad spot. After trying almost every type of treatment and pill over a few months, I had lost hope and had decided to quit my job. It was during this time that I visited SpineWise. They figured out that I was off kilter and putting more load on one side. Using orthotics, chiropractic, laser and some good home recommendations, I am not back on my feet! SpineWise is awesome!
Imagine a helpless dad who 14 years old daughter couldn’t stand up straight and always complained of intense back pain. Her family doctor diagnosed her with growing pains, but I knew it was more than that – something wasn’t right. After spending an hour on google, it became clear that I needed to go to SpineWise because they had so many good ratings. Dr. Amit explained that my daughter was suffering from scoliosis and that the type that she had was very manageable. After a few months of care we are able to see a good reduction in the curve and she’s in way less pain. These people know what they are doing.
SpineWise, you guys are the best! My bike accident 3 years back had left me literally handicapped and in grueling chronic pain due to a herniated disc. I could hardly bend, stand straight or even sleep. I did your typical therapy for 3 years and nothing. My girlfriend thought that I should try spinal decompression and I owe her my life. I am done with the first month of treatment and I am a different man. The pain is much less and I’m moving around a lot better and I feel like I have another shot at life!
