Test for Modic changes

Do you have Modic changes?

If your response is YES to three or more of these questions, it is likely that you have Modic changes in your spine.

- Do you have pain in your lower back during the night?

- Does the pain in you lower back wake you up when you turn over in bed?

- Is the pain worst in the morning, better at midday and worse again in the afternoon and evening?

- Does it feel as though your pain is located deep in the spine?

- Does it sometimes radiate down into one or both of your legs?

- When doing physical activity or exercising, does your back pain get worse or at best remain unchanged?

- Have you ever had an X-ray that shows you have some spinal disc degeneration?

- Do you suffer back pain constantly or for most of the day?  Even if the intensity varies so that at some point it is relatively low, it is almost always there.

- Have you tried a variety of treatments that are supposed to help back pain but they didn’t work for you?
