Question for Dr.Z

Posted by Regina on 12/06/01 at 00:03 (066295)

Hello Dr.Z,
I have a couple of questions I would like to ask you.
I have had an MRI just recently for my foot pain-haven't gotten results as of yet however.I am curious as to what exactly does an MRI show?Can it show nerves,etc.and also I have a tremendous amt.of back pain too.If this should be most of my problem who would be better to address it-an orthopedist and to I am wondering if orthotics would help to alleviate some of the back pain? Thanks very much as always.Regina

Hi,

An mri evaluates joints ligament, tendons, fractures, cysts, Not nerves. Yes orthosis can help your lower back back.
