x-ray of lower leg

Why is an X-ray Necessary?

Muscle strains, fractured bones and sprained ligaments can hurt in similar ways, making it difficult to know what kind of injury you have. It’s important to have an injury properly diagnosed so that the right treatment is applied and you recover from your injury quickly, without complications.

We have a mobile x-ray machine available at most centers* so we can bring the x-ray machine straight into your exam room!

*North Carolina centers do not have mobile x-ray machines. X-Ray rooms are available at all centers, except Thomasville.
