Specific, highly accurate x-rays of the painful areas of your back are taken to check for ligamentous injuries and fractures. Measurements recommended by the American Medical Association – AMA Translation Method – or Penning Method are made. These unique and very accurate methods are used to determine the extent of ligament damage you may have received. Depending on my findings, I may call for an MRI, CAT Scan, Motion Imaging, or another imaging study of your back to further assess your injuries.
