The lower back is a complex system of intricate muscles, tendons, soft tissues, joints, spinal discs, nerve roots, and highly sensitive nerves. As such, even the smallest abnormality can cause severe back pain. Discography is an effective diagnostic procedure that reveals pain-related problems with the lower back and spine.
When Is Discography Recommended?
Discography is recommended for patients suffering from the following conditions:
- Lumbar disc herniation
- Degenerative disc disease
- Strain on soft tissues
- Joint degeneration
- Compression fracture
Symptoms associated with lower back problems include the following:
- Dull and achy pain
- Difficulty in standing or walking
- Moderate to severe muscle spasms
- Pain not observed in leg or below knees
- Pain to upper thigh, groin, and buttocks
- Soreness in specific areas when touched
How Is Discography Performed?
Your doctor uses several parameters and calculations when injecting the discography solution into your spine. They include; the amount of pressure required to inject into the spine disc, the amount of dye necessary, and how the dye appears inside your disc upon viewing by x-ray. An effective method to measure the changes occurring in your spine, discography is a popular test that maps out different symptoms and root causes of back pain.

Properly diagnosing the cause of your lower back pain is enhanced with a discography procedure. This minimally invasive procedure is highly accurate and effective in the diagnosis and treatment of back pain.
