Spine/neck problem question

Does anyone know when you get a spinal MRI if the part in your neck is included?? I ask because when I turn my head quickly back and forth I literally hear something rubbing I can't place what it is. No pain or anything, is it possible it's two vertabrae rubbing yet no pain. Any ideas? My muscles have full mobility,I am having sinus problems now but how can that be relevant?

Re: Spine/neck problem question

Unless Canada does things very differently, spinal MRI's are done for three discrete sections: cervical, thoracic and lumbar.

As for that sound... if two vertebrae were rubbing, it's hard to believe you wouldn't have some pain. But who knows.... something must be causing it. I'd ask an orthopedist.

in edit... I would think several x-rays could find out if bone is rubbing on bone... no MRI needed
