Diagnostic Tests

During your treatment you may have different diagnostic tests ordered/performed to better understand the source of your pain. These tests may include:

  • Diagnostic nerve blocks to identify the exact source of pain.
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans that create detailed pictures of the body’s internal structure by using a magnetic field and radio waves.
  • CT or CAT (computerized axial tomography) scans that take a series of X-rays at different angles to show a detailed view of internal organs
  • EMG/nerve conduction testing
  • Psychological testing
  • Lab testing of urine, blood, and saliva.
