Comprehensive Orthopedic Services
At the Monroeville GPOA location, our providers offer state-of-the-art spinal service exams and diagnostic x-rays. Spinal exams and diagnostic x-rays play an essential role in evaluating and diagnosing spine-related conditions, injuries, and deformities.
During a spinal exam, a healthcare provider will conduct a thorough physical assessment of the patient's spine, assessing range of motion, alignment, muscle strength, and other factors that can indicate underlying issues.
If further evaluation is necessary, a diagnostic x-ray may be ordered. X-rays use low levels of radiation to produce images of the body's internal structures, including the bones of the spine. These images can help identify abnormalities like fractures, dislocations, tumors, or degenerative changes in the bones or joints of the spine.
In some cases, additional imaging tests, such as CT scans or MRI, may be needed to provide a more detailed view of the spine's soft tissue structures, including the discs, nerves, and spinal cord. These tests use advanced technology to create highly detailed images that can detect even the smallest abnormalities in the spine.
By identifying issues early on, patients can receive prompt and effective care that addresses their specific needs and helps them achieve optimal spinal health and function.
