From the Disc. For the Disc.
One of the leading causes of lumbar pain is the age-related wear and tear we experience on our intervertebral discs. Over time, our discs shrink and lose hydration, resulting in a loss of flexibility and cushioning ability which can lead to instability, reduced mobility and the potential for nerve compression or pain.
Via Disc NP is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that can help restore the cushioning function of the intervertebral disc and supplement a patient’s tissue loss due to intervertebral disc degeneration.
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) and Discogenic Pain
The spine is composed of two main structural components: (1) vertebrae and (2) intervertebral discs.
- The vertebrae are the bones of the spine that function to protect the spinal cord and support the upper body.
- Each vertebra is separated by an intervertebral disc which acts to cushion against impact and provide flexibility to support your body’s ability to bend and rotate.
Characteristics of Degenerated Discs
Degenerated discs are characterized by decreased disc height, loss of water content and loss of nutrient content.
These functional biomechanical alterations present as cracks and fissures within your disc. Altogether, the structural changes in the degenerated disc strain the nerves, put focal pressure on the spine and ultimately cause pain
