PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

Before your appointment, you should document when and where you have pain, its severity and duration, and any recent trauma to your lower back.

Your doctor will ask about these as well as what medication, vitamins, or supplements you take, your medical history, and your lifestyle habits. These can help them rule out other medical conditions and injuries. Your doctor will also perform a physical examination to investigate any mobility limitations of the spine, balance problems, loss of reflexes, muscle weakness, or sensory loss. Your doctor may order imaging tests such as:

  • X-ray
  • MRI
  • CT myelogram
  • Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction study
