Discography (also called a Discogram or Disc Stimulation) is a medical procedure used to identify source of pain in the spine and help in the diagnosis of back pain.
Is completely diagnostic (do not improve pain) and will help your physician to determine if one of the discs on your spine is causing the typical pain symptoms.
The Discogram is an X-ray guided procedure that involves pressurizing discs by injecting them with a sterile liquid to induce pain in the affected discs, in order to be studied.
It is very important that you contact a Pain Management Specialist in order to determine if this is the best procedure to do.
