If you’re suffering from neck and/or low back pain, chances are you had an x-ray taken to determine the cause of the problem. Many times x-ray is a good diagnostic tool if the problem is caused by injury to a bone, however, many people continue to have pain and this is where an MRI may be a better diagnostic option.
