Are X-Rays Necessary?

No comments

In some rare cases x-rays and more advanced imaging such as MRI’s and CT scans are needed in order to rule out an underlying pathology that may be causing you back pain, such as; cancer, infections, fractures, systemic arthritities such as Rheumatoid arthritis etc…

These instances are only very rare and for the most part imaging is not needed for non specific or mechanical type back pain, However an assessment by a chiropractor or physiotherapist or general practitioner may be needed to determine if further investigations may be required.
