We should never discount an MRI scan as it can be used as an extremely accurate method of disease detection throughout the body. However, they can also be quite misleading.
A high proportion of patients that we see come to us with issues concerning their lower back or neck. We are all very experienced and skilled clinicians, and can usually let our patients know what we think their problem is, without scans or x-rays. Many patients though feel that we can only really know what is going on if they have an MRI scan.
