Muscles can be imaged on an MRI but it is unusual that muscles tears would cause your symptoms. Injections are not just for treatment but are very valuable to diagnose conditions. If the thoracic disc hernation is causing your symptoms, a selective nerve root block will give you temporary relief of your symptoms. See “pain diary” to understand this concept.
