Radiation Exposure

I'm struggling whether to have ordered x-rays.  I do not believe I have any factures just soft tissue/sprains suffered from a fall several weeks ago.  Yet, doc wants to x-ray hip, lower back and ankle.  Ugh! I have nerve damage in my spine thanks to the radiation treatment and it is effecting my stability.  I asked that I be refered to PT and he came back with 4 x-ray orders!  Seems like unnessecary exposure to radiation. Any thoughts? Thanks
