Diagnosing Back Pain
An in-depth examination will be the first step toward getting you back to doing what you love.
This will include:
Comprehensive physical examination and health history, including a review of your daily functions, activities, sleeping habits and any other factors that may be contributing to your pain.
Electrodiagnostic testing (including electromyography and nerve conduction studies) that records and analyzes the electrical signals in your muscles and nerves to help your doctor diagnose issues that may be causing your pain.
Imaging, including x-ray, MRI and ultrasound, that provide high-resolution images of joints, tissues and the spine. Diagnostic ultrasound can even spot problems while you're in motion.
Diagnostic injections to help your doctor pinpoint the source of your pain.
