5. X-Ray or MRI Studies

Your specific condition may occasionally require us to take images; either MRI scans or x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Scans are not always necessary and research has shown imaging is not necessary for certain conditions including most types of back pain.
