How To Test For Hip, Leg and Foot Pain

 

You should undergo a full clinical evaluation with diagnostic testing prior to starting any new chronic back pain treatment program.  This will help identify the root cause of your condition and allow for creation of a treatment program most suited to your specific condition.

Chronic hip, leg and foot pain is typically diagnosed using one or more of the following tests:

 

X-rays:

An x-ray allows the doctor to see your bones, joints and any possible degenerative lesions in the spine.  It does not allow him to evaluate the soft tissue such as muscles and ligaments.

Bone Scan:

This test injects a small radioactive tracer into a vein in the arm that is “tagged” to a calcium like material.  It takes about 4 hours and has no known side effects.  It is typically only conducted to confirm the doctor’s diagnosis of specific bone conditions.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI):

An MRI is a common test used to evaluate the soft tissues in the body, especially the spine’s discs, joints, nerves and bones. The test is prescribed in a weight bearing mode to better evaluate the interverbal disc spaces.

Myelogram:

This test injects dye into the spinal column to help flex the area before being x-rayed in order to allow the doctor to see affected areas more clearly.

Cat Scan (CT Scan):

This test used when the doctor suspects problems with your bones or when you are unable to obtain an MRI.

Bone Density Test:

This important procedure allows the doctor to determine if there are signs of early or progressing osteoporosis.  It is fast, painless and noninvasive.

Discography:

This test is used to help the doctor to determine the level of the painful disc.

EMG:

This test evaluate the nerves in the arms and legs to assess possible obstructions.
