BACK PAIN AND WHAT THE MRI SCAN IS ABOUT_DR.BIODUN OGUNGBO

Our back is like the way we build houses.Block/cement/block/cement.

There are 5 bones in the lower back with 5 shock absorbers.

Many things can cause pain in the lower back/waist

  • The bones
  • The shock absorbers
  • The joints
  • The ligaments
  • The muscles
  • The blood vessels.

A Doctor’s job is to take a good history and do a full clinical examination. Thereafter, he can order blood tests,xrays,ct scan or an MRI scan to determine what is wrong,where, and plan what to do next.

Don’t assume you know the cause, see a qualified Doctor and get the right diagnosis to prevent complications.
