The many tests used to diagnose back pain

Have you suffered a back injury at work? Are you worried that this will keep you away from your job for an extended period of time?

If you find yourself in this position, you should do two things:

-- Immediately report the injury to your employer.

-- Receive medical attention.

If you've ever suffered a back injury, you know that this can cause you quite a bit of pain and discomfort. In fact, it can be so serious that you're unable to go about your daily life.

There are many ways for a medical professional to diagnose a back injury. In addition to a physical exam, your doctor may also suggest:

-- MRI scan. This shows the discs and nerve roots located in the back.

-- CT scan. This can help identify conditions such as spinal stenosis and a herniated disc.

-- X-rays. A common test that gives the doctor a close look at the bone structure. It can help pinpoint fractures, tumors and any cause of instability.

With so many tests used to diagnose back pain, you never know what your medical team will suggest. As long as you go with the flow, you know that your injury and cause of pain will be pinpointed soon enough.

In the event that you suffered a back injury on the job, you may be able to file a workers' compensation claim to receive benefits until you're able to return to work. By reporting your injury and receiving medical attention, there's a better chance that your claim will be approved the first time around.
