We will review, with you, your current and older X-rays, MRI’s, EMG’s and other diagnostic testing that you may have had performed. In many cases, if you do not have possession of images or reports we can request a copy of them from the facility where they were performed.
If you have not yet had these diagnostics performed we can easily help you to get them performed and reviewed with you. It is very important that you have an understanding of your condition and a brief explanation of these tests are very helpful as you navigate to determine the most appropriate treatment.
