While for the majority of cases x-rays are a sufficient diagnostic tool, sometimes an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is required to help with a diagnosis. MRI’s can pick up bones, muscles, organs and other soft tissue, and can show everything in much more detail than an x-ray. This makes MRI’s ideal for diagnosing disc herniation among many other conditions.
MRI scans can be used to investigate almost any area of the body including:
Nervous system – including the brain and spinal cord
Bones & Joints – you can check for tears and damage to joint surfaces, ligaments & tendons
Blood vessels – the condition of arteries and veins can be viewed and assessed
Internal organs – all organs can be checked for size and functional condition
Your Chiropractor can refer you for an MRI on a self-pay basis, with all providers being approved by the main private insurance companies. Self-pay referral options start at £200.
