Does Dr. Reiss request x-rays be taken?
(back to top) No, the doctor often find x-rays and other images techniques to be of little or no use in her practice. These images are 2-dimensional and static, exactly what a living body is not. She typically finds her Osteopathic touch to be far more effective in diagnosis and treatment for removing restrictions to full motion and circulation. The rare request for medical imaging may be when Dr. Reiss suspects, through her years of experience in ER medicine, a fracture or potentially debilitating condition that would be best treated with the addition of conventional means.
