When x-rays tell you more than you need to know

X-Rays and mRIs are wonderful advances in medical technology but the use of them often draws attention to perceived problems rather than physical damage that really needs to be addressed.

As this informative poster from Advanced Physical Therapy Education Institute (APTEI) says:

‘once “serious” problems have been ruled out by a doctor, minor findings are of no value in helping to explain the far majority of aches and pains. …In fact…. studies support that they are even harmful from a psychological point of view.’

I think the the ‘take home’ from this is DON’T PANIC.
