Diagnosing Back Pain

We focus on finding the cause of your back pain. An effective treatment plan must begin with the correct diagnosis – that’s why you’ll undergo an in-depth examination as the first step to getting back to doing what you love.

Back pain can be tricky – a spinal condition, nerve issues or even a hip or knee problem can cause back pain. Our team has years of experience in diagnosing and treating back pain. We'll offer a wide range of diagnostic exams, tests and advanced procedures to determine the cause of your back pain.

Comprehensive physical examination and health history, including a review of your daily functions, activities, sleeping habits and any other factors that may be contributing to your pain.

Electrodiagnostic testing (including electromyography and nerve conduction studies) records and analyzes the electrical signals in your muscles and nerves to help your doctor diagnose issues that may be causing your pain.

Imaging, including x-ray, MRI and ultrasound, provide high-resolution images of joints, tissues and the spine. Diagnostic ultrasound can even spot problems while you're in motion.

Diagnostic injections help physicians pinpoint the source of your pain.
