Discogenic Pain Treatment

To get the proper care that’s right for you, it’s important to identify the source of pain. Discogenic pain can be in the back or neck and is described as one or more intervertebral discs that are the pain source. 

This happens over time as we age and is associated with degeneration of the lumbar or cervical spine. Incidentally, once the disc has lost all inflammatory proteins, typically after the age of 60, then the pain virtually goes away.  However, if you are experiencing pain, it can be treated with non-surgical methods such as physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, acupuncture, and medication. If the pain is chronic, then there are minimally invasive options.

So let’s look at the research: According to Science Direct, degenerative disc disease is identified in radiology by a number of characteristics including disc space narrowing, vacuum disc, endplate sclerosis, and osteophyte formation. MRI is the preferred modality of imaging to diagnose degenerative disc disease. A herniated disc, bulging disc, and internal disc derangement can cause disc degeneration and lead to discogenic pain.
