Identifying the source of your back pain requires a professional with experience to weigh all the variables and arrive at the exact diagnosis. Back pain can be caused by injury to the joints, ligaments, discs, or muscles. It can be acute or chronic, genetic, or caused by injury. Our highly trained doctors have the experience and expertise to diagnose and treat your condition quickly and capably.

Precise Technology for Precise Diagnosis

The Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine takes advantage of advanced technology and equipment to pinpoint the exact cause of your back pain and provide you with a custom treatment plan and options. Your doctor may employ:

  • X-ray: A way to get images of your bones
  • Discogram: An X-ray with a dye injection to show ruptured, damaged, or herniated discs
  • CAT scan: A more advanced X-ray combined with advanced computer technology 
  • EMG
  • CT Scan
  • MRI
  • Bone Scan
  • Myelogram 

These diagnostic imaging and tests help your doctor to best identify your diagnosis and recommend the most effective treatment possible.

Getting to Know You

Initial visits seek to get a comprehensive snapshot of your health and spinal history.

This information will include general medical conditions as well as variables that are specific to your individual lifestyle or occupation, etc. 

Spinal health issues of interest include:

  • the onset and progression of symptoms
  • the location and severity of the pain
  • what treatments you may have previously used

This background information lays the foundation for your treatment and is typically followed by a complete physical exam. After gathering your history, information, and physical, the doctor will often order one or more diagnostic tests to pinpoint the sources and causes of your back and neck pain.
