Common Chronic Neck Pain Testing Procedures in the Chicago Area

It's important to understand before starting a chronic neck pain treatment you should have a medical evaluation and diagnostic tests. During the medical evaluation your doctor will typically evaluate your chronic neck pain condition. Our doctor provides non-surgical relief from serious disc conditions in the neck such as bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative discs, and more.

Your doctor will use one or more of the following testing procedures:

  • X-rays: a procedure often chosen to help assess joints, degenerative lesions and bones located in your spine.
  • Cat Scan (CT): a standard procedure used of a patient has trouble obtaining and MRI or if the doctor suspects issues in the bones.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): a method commonly used when performing a full evaluation on your lumbar spine is necessary.
  • Myelogram: a test where dye is injected into your spinal column to aid in flexing the area before you are x-rayed.
  • 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.
