Nonoperative management of discogenic
back pain: a systematic review.
The system is indicated for use in the temporary stabilization of the anterior spine during the development of cervical spinal fusion in patients with degenerative disc disease (as defined by neck pain of discogenic
origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by patient history and radiographic studies), spondylolisthesis, trauma (i.
Restoration of disk height through non-surgical spinal decompression is associated with decreased discogenic
low back pain: a retrospective cohort study.
Intervertebral disc biacuplasty for the treatment of lumbar discogenic
pain: results of a six-month follow-up.
NuQu, ISTO's cell-based technology platform for cartilage regeneration, is a minimally invasive surgical treatment for lumbar and discogenic
While there are many causes of chronic back pain, dancers generally experience problems from one of three sources: 1) discogenic
, such as a herniated disc; 2) structural, arising in the bones like a stress fracture; or 3) arthritis from wear and tear, leading to degenerative joints.
Recent reviews of surgical efficacy suggest that fusion surgery is no better than multidisciplinary, intensive nonsurgical treatment for discogenic
back pain (pain due to degenerative discs, without sciatica), but with a worse safety profile and greater cost (Mirza and Deyo 2007; Washington State Health Care Authority 2007).
These include, but are not limited to, balloon kyphoplasty for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures, the mild procedure for lumbar spinal stenosis, implantable spinal cord and peripheral nerve stimulators for radiculopathy, peripheral neuropathy, and other painful nerve conditions, implantable pain pumps for intractable chronic pain, and disc ablation/injection therapies for discogenic
It could be muscular, it could be discogenic
, or it could be arthritis.
Anesthesiologists and other pain specialists look at neurostimulation, intrathecal drug delivery systems, discogenic
pain procedures, and injections.
DDD is defined as discogenic
back pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies.
