Our Services

Osteoporosis Scanning

Using a unique combination of Laser and X-Ray analysis, we measure bone density in the heel to accurately identify and monitor patients.

Osteoporosis is often called the ‘silent disease’ because the first indication can often be a spontaneous fracture of the hip or spine. The key to preventing osteoporotic fractures is early diagnosis, exercise and the timely use of appropriate medication or supplements. 

Our DXL Calscan uses Dual X-ray and Laser technique, which combines traditional DXA with a precision laser measurement of heel thickness. The DXL technique can more accurately reduce the errors caused by adipose tissue with DXA alone.​There are many advantages of calcaneal scanning, which is less prone to error and uses only minute amounts of x-ray, which makes it safe to monitor patients as they undergo treatment to improve their bone density.

Chiropractors are uniquely trained in both x-ray technologies and nutritional physiology making them the healthcare professionals of choice to assess and counsel or refer patients with lowered bone density.
