Discogenic Pain Treatment
The spinal discs in the spine play an important role in stabilizing and cushioning the vertebrae. When a spinal disc is damaged, it can impact the surrounding nerves and tissues, causing pain and mobility issues. Herniated discs, bulging discs or degenerative disc disease can all be a source of neck or back pain, but some types of disc pain do not fit into these specific conditions. Discogenic pain can be frustrating, but there are treatment options. Ospina Medical offers discogenic pain treatment at our clinic in New York City.
Spinal disc damage can occur without evidence that is visible on imaging. Most discogenic pain is in the neck or lower back, which may also be a symptom of many other spinal and musculoskeletal conditions. To diagnose discogenic pain and find an effective treatment option, it can be a process of elimination of the possible causes of pain. Our interventional medicine physicians use advanced diagnostic tools to determine the source of neck and back pain, identifying the possibility of discogenic pain.
Relieving Spinal Disc Pain
Discogenic pain treatment depends on the symptoms experienced by the patient. The outer layer of spinal discs contains nerves that can cause pain. It is also possible for disc damage to irritate surrounding nerves and cause inflammation in the tissue. Steroid injections and other injection therapies can help diagnose discogenic pain and offer relief for the patient. We utilize advanced imaging for guided injections to target the source of discogenic pain to relieve inflammation and pain. When the source of pain is identified, another possible discogenic pain treatment is spinal cord stimulation, interrupting the pain signals from the affected area.
