Diagnosis of back and neck pain
While lower back pain is common, it may be an indication of a more serious condition. After obtaining your medical history, your physician may prescribe tests to confirm your diagnosis and determine the best course of treatment. The tests may include:
- X-ray imaging including dynamic flexion/ extension x-rays
- CT scan
- MRI including open, standing and dynamic MRIs
- Bone scan
Additionally, you will be evaluated and examined by a multidisciplinary team of specialists at the Atlantic Neuroscience Institute.
