Nerves & Soft Tissue (Muscle).

Tips for your spine

Everyday health tips for your spine

Does excess weight cause
Back Pain?

“People, who are overweight are at greater risk to experience chronic back pain.”

All of us are aware that excess weight can interfere with our health. It increases the risk of heart diseases and lowers life expectancy of the patient.

But is it also causing a pandemic of back pain? The number of obese population in India has doubled in the last ten years and so is the number of back pain patients.

Are MRIs and X-rays enough to
diagnose the cause of back pain?

It is common for most doctors to advise imaging tests like MRI or X-ray to determine the cause of back pain.

MRI & X-ray images cannot distinguish between subtypes of back pain and chronic issues. MRI findings do not match with intensity of pain and disability in case of discogenic back pain.

Interpretive errors by radiologists make these reports extremely subjective which, can directly impact the diagnosis, treatment and clinical outcomes.
