AlignLife of Springfield Chiropractic & Natural Health Center has installed a digital x-ray, which means faster treatment and relief for patients.
The detailed images produced by the digital x-ray are higher in quality and sensitivity with quicker turnaround. “What used to take me 15-to-20 minutes now takes just five,” said Dr. Bryne Willey, AlignLife of Springfield owner. “It's not just about image clarity, I take a lot of measurements that dictate treatment, and the measurements and tools I have with the viewing program now allow me to be more specific and detailed than I ever was with regular film.”
The new digital x-ray also allows Dr. Willey, born and raised in Springfield, to store and share images electronically with patients and other healthcare providers he may be co-managing with.
“The technology is better than ever, and the need for our office was there as well,” said Dr. Willey who established AlignLife of Springfield in October 2013. “Efficiency has become a big focus for us so finding ways to enhance our efficiency while also improving quality, not sacrificing it, is something we always want to strive for with our practice and patient experience.”
Essentially, better images and clarity leads to better patient care. “This elevates our service beyond our competitors, and is now on par with major healthcare agencies in Springfield,” said Dr. Bryne. “Less time waiting on the processor means quicker initial visits for patients, which opens up more time on the schedule and means we can help a greater number of people.”
Chemicals are no longer needed with a digital x-ray, which is also good for the environment.
Dr. Willey has trained in several chiropractic techniques, gained certification in acupuncture, achieved a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree, and earned his Masters of Science Degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation with distinction.
Dr. Willey frequently treats an extensive number of conditions including spinal, muscle, and joint pain, as well as offering weight management, detoxification, and hormone balancing consultations. Dr. Willey works with babies, children, adults, and seniors. He has also worked with amputees.
