MRI Order & Review
Why Do We Use MRIs?
At Health 1st Wellness & Physical Medicine, we order MRIs not only to diagnose a patient’s condition, but also use them as a tool to direct the course of treatment. Lumbar, Thoracic, and Cervical MRIs enable us to visualize pathology in the spinal column to determine if patients are candidates for treatment, or if they need to be referred to another specialist.
What Conditions Can We Detect With MRIs?
MRIs Can Help To Guide A Patient's Treatment
Conditions such as spinal stenosis, disc herniations, spinal nerve root impingements, and much more can be detected through MRI evaluation. The doctors at Health 1st Wellness & Physical Medicine perform a thorough orthopedic/neurological examination and determine whether or not an MRI is necessary to confirm a diagnosis. They routinely treat disc bulges/herniations, degenerative disc problems, and spinal stenosis with various state-of-the-art therapies.
Am I A Candidate For An MRI?
Patients who are experiencing pain, numbness, tingling, burning, and/or weakness in their extremities are typical candidates for MRIs. While these symptoms are often the result of spinal related problems, other conditions can cause these symptoms, as well. Diagnosing the patient’s condition accurately requires highly trained experts, and you will find the doctors at Health 1st Wellness & Physical Medicine to be highly competent and skilled with this process.
