It will be better if MRI was done under your doctor's supervision. Your spine should be investigated for herniated discs or fractures too.

Thanks for the query. If there is nothing on the x ray then it rules out a fracture but doesnt rule out lateral and medial menisceal tear for which MRI will help . Have a nice day.
