Back pain - Diagnosis


During diagnosis, your doctor will ask questions about your symptoms and perform a physical examination. The exact reason for the back pain may be hard to find but if your pain is severe, and if the doctor may suspect any underlying cause, then the following techniques can be used to find a solution.

  • MRI scans
  • CT scans
  • X-Rays

Besides all these, your doctor may first ask you to do some normal activities to find out how comfortable you’re or how difficult it is. It includes your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift some weight or lift your legs, etc.
