Screening & Diagnosis

More Comfortable MRI Experience

Accurate Diagnosis of Neck, Back, & Spine Conditions Based on Experience 

It’s important to have an accurate diagnosis of your back, neck, or spine condition before you consider treatment options. Diagnostic technicians and spine doctors at NHRMC excel at pinpointing diagnoses - a skill that comes with experience, knowledge, and training.

Often your doctor can establish a diagnosis by performing a physical examination and reviewing your medical history. Depending on the cause of your condition, the location of your pain, and your other symptoms, your doctor may order tests and imaging to help determine the cause of your back, neck, or spine pain.
