How do I know if I need an X-Ray?

If you can not put your weight on the injured limb after an injury or by the time you see your doctor, he or she will probably order an X-ray. See your doctor if you have persistent pain, swelling, discoloration or a locking or catching sensation. For an injury assessment, call us to make an appointment.

We encourage setting up your doctor's appointment with Dr Scott Naftulin and Specialty Spine, Sports & Pain at the Bethlehem Spinal Care Treatment Center by completing the On-Line Appointment Scheduler. You may also contact us by calling (610) 954-9400 to arrange a visit to the doctor.
