Location of Symptoms
Finding the Source of Your Back Pain
To help us diagnose your condition, we need to know where your symptoms are located. Where are you experiencing pain? Do you feel any numbness or tingling? When you visit us at the Michigan Spine Clinic, we will take the time to listen to the description of your discomfort in detail and use that to find the source of your pain.
The following symptom locator tool can help you better understand your pain and provide you with a list of conditions that most commonly produce the pain, numbness, or tingling, you may be experiencing. By clicking on a category below, you can begin to narrow down the various types of conditions that may be causing you distress, keeping in mind that your final diagnosis may be different from what you find here.
It is important to us that our patients educate themselves and the information you find here will assist you when you come in for your visit. At the Michigan Spine Clinic, we use a comprehensive approach to assess and diagnose your condition with methods that may include tests such as X-rays and MRIs.
