Back & Neck Pain
One of the most common complaints presented to physicians is back and neck pain. There are many causes of this type of pain; sports injury, spinal misalignment and occupational stress as experienced by those working on computers for long hours. Arthritis and osteoporosis can be the cause of back and neck pain.
Often this type of pain is misdiagnosed resulting in an unhealthy intake of pain medication over a number of years. To correctly determine the cause of this type of generalized pain, diagnostic imaging is necessary.
MRI, CT scan, Ultrasound and Radionuclide Bone Scan are a few of the tests available to detect the cause of back and neck pain. An accurate diagnosis is the first step in relieving back and neck pain and preventing joint damage or deformity.
