Although MRIs are important for doctors to confirm and show their patients injuries, MRIs will not give you the full picture as to what is going on.
After getting an MRI, you may have to undergo more procedures or surgeries in hopes of relieving your pain. However, the surgeries and procedures following your MRI are not a 100% recovery guarantee. In fact, 50% of patients who resort too surgery to relieve their low back pain suffer from Failed Low Back Pain Syndrome. This is when patients continue to have persistent or recurrent symptoms after spinal surgery.
