Low Back Pain - Diagnosis

Diagnosis of Acute Low Back Pain

Without clinical signs of a serious illness, diagnostic imaging such as a scan or xray or laboratory testing often are not required. A careful history will be taken to rule out any underlying cause other than a sprain or strain.

If it should be required additional testing can be:
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Xrays – bending forwards and backwards.
