    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    something other than a mri?

    I had posted about my radiculopathy and through all this I have been asked why the orthapedic didnt give me an mri? and I never thought much of it because the signs are all there figuring that was how I was diagnosed. But now I realize I may not be able to have an mri because I have a steel plate in my arm. Is there another way they would be able to detect what is causing this? be it lesions on the spine or herniated discs, osteoarthritis whatever.
