We have a radiology laboratory in the clinic, which allows us to obtain radiological results the same day, making our service fast and efficient. Dr Lapointe has a license in diagnostic radiology, he reads and interprets himself the films he takes. If indicated or in doubt , Dr Lapointe has his radiographs read by an expert radiologist specialized in chiropractic ( a DACBR doctor ) licensed from the American Board of Chiropractic Radiologists.
Radiology is a medical specialty which uses imaging to diagnose and treat diseases observed in humans . In plain film radiography, an X-ray tube generates an X-ray beam that is intended for the patient . X-rays that pass through the patient are filtered through a device called a grid or X -ray filter
Radiographs exist since the beginnings of Chiropractic in 1895. Chiropractors use this tool to diagnose and analyze : - spine alignment , cervical , thoracic and lumbar curves -the integrity or the wear of the intervertebral discs -Wear of the articular cartilage ( hips, knees, etc. ) -the bone mineralization -Soft tissues (bursitis , abdomen , lungs , throat , etc. )
The clinic has an on-site radiology lab, which allows us to obtain results on the same day as thex-rays are taken. Our patients therefore benefit from faster and more efficient service.

I couldn't exercise nor swim, even walking was becoming difficult. These problems persisted for 4 years.After 1 week of chiropractic care, my jaw problem was gone, my neck pain and headaches were greatly reduced. My lower backpain was gone.Now I exercise , run , do weight training, and my favorite is swimming.I recommand chiropractic care to everyone, I have brought my kids in for care as well.
