Spinal Decay X-ray Chart Shows 3 Phases of Subluxation Degeneration
“Patients relate to the decay concept on this X-ray chart.”
This x-ray poster introduces spinal decay. It suggests neglect. It’s something that requires attention. It’s something that patients understand. It works for dentists. Put it to work in your practice! (Learn why we don’t call it Subluxation Degeneration.)
Our Spinal Decay Chart is an essential tool for your examination and report rooms. Have the patient compare their lateral views with the examples printed here. Have them tell you what phase of spinal decay their spine is in. Sure, it’s more expedient to just tell them, but they’ll more likely “own” their problem when you have them tell you!
Crystal clear cervical spine X-rays, thoracic spine X-rays and lumbar spine X-rays make the job easy. And the three-phase approach makes the distinctions between each phase great enough that a lay person can see the spinal degeneration changes. (Which, after all, is the point, isn’t it?)
Frame and mount one copy so patients are facing it as you take their neutral lateral views. Have a second copy ready for comparison where you give your report of findings. (Choose between right- and left-facing X-rays to match your technique.)
