Hi--yes an MRI shows not only the bones of the spine but the spinal cord, the intervertebral disks, the ligaments, and the nerve roots. You need that now to see if you have a ruptured disk problem with compression on a nerve root. A nerve conduction study by a neurologist can also pinpoint the area of nerve compression
