  • They can see some things in your back via xray (if it is actually the bone that's damaged or out of place). An MRI shows the actual disks better, but I think most ER's have access to an MRI as well. If you are in pain, you should go to the doctor ASAP. Back problems tend to get worse if left untreated.
