Chronic Back Pain Testing Procedures in the Chicago Area

Prior to beginning any chronic back pain treatment, you should undergo a medical evaluation and diagnostic testing procedures. This step will help determine the most effective treatment process for your specific condition.

The cause of chronic back pain is commonly evaluated through one of the following testing procedures:

  • X-rays: a procedure used to evaluate bones, joints and degenerative lesions in the spine.
  • Cat Scan (CT): a procedure used when there are suspected problems in the bones or when a patient can't obtain an MRI.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): the most common procedure used to evaluate the vertebral bones, discs, joints, nerves and soft tissues in the lumbar spine.
  • Myelogram: a procedure that injects dye into the spinal column to help flex the area before being x-rayed.
  • Discography: a procedure used to determine the level of the painful disc.
  • EMG: a procedure also known as a nerve condition study used to test the nerves in the arms and legs.
  • Bone Density Test: a procedure that is fast, painless and noninvasive.
  • Bone Scan: a procedure that requires the patient to receive a small radioactive tracer injection that is "tagged" to a calcium like material. The tracer is typically injected into a vein in the arm. The procedure takes about 4 hours and has no side effects.
