Many sources of spine, musculoskeletal, and neurologic pain can be identified with by performing a thorough history and physical examination as well as obtaining various imaging studies (x-ray, MRI, CT). In some cases, though, Dr. Craig Best may recommend further testing such as electrodiagnostic studies (EMG/NCS) and/or diagnostic injections to more precisely identify the source of a patient’s pain. Particularly in cases of neck and back pain, diagnostic injections remain the gold standard to best identify the main cause of a patient’s spine-related pain.
