Dr. Kaixuan Liu with Atlantic Spine Center discusses Minimally Invasive...
There are several steps commonly taken by doctors to diagnose radiculitis:
During the physical examination your doctor will examine and manipulate the area you are feeling pain, as well as perform sensation and reflex tests.
X-rays or CT scans may be ordered to rule out other conditions that may be causing your pain and symptoms. An MRI with a dye injection into your spinal canal may be necessary to visualize your soft tissue, spinal cord, and it’s exiting nerve roots. If nerve compression or irritation is suspected, electro diagnostic tests such as an EMG will be performed.
Endoscopic spine procedures can be used to correct many of the conditions that cause chronic back pain or to repair failed previous surgeries.- Kaixuan Liu, MD, PhD President, Atlantic Spine Center Read More about Dr.Liu
