What's in a picture?

With any type of pain, especially back pain it is tempting to believe an image (X-RAy will help identify the cause of the problem and help pain management.

It is worth noting the following if you have x-rays or MRI images:

  1. abnormalities are found in pain-free people

  2. Abnormalities do not predict pain and

  3. Abnormalities are not necessarily to blame for pain experienced

Avoiding activity for fear of pain or injury is associated with worse outcomes for people with back pain.

Surgical interventions have not been found to improve a return to activity when compared to conservative management.
