MRI Scans for Back Pain

If you are suffering from back pain, the most likely cause is from ligament strain.

An MRI scan can be very reassuring if it excludes any other type of injury.  On the other hand, if there is a protruding disc (slipped disc) pressing on a nerve, this is often well demonstrated.

Other abnormalities of the vertebrae or muscles of the back may also be evident on an MRI scan.
