Lumbar discogenic pain is common. Nikolai Bogduk, MD presents a State-of-the Art review on discogenic pain.
He concludes : “Discogenic pain can occur and can be diagnosed if strict operational criteria are used….” It is refreshing to see true, foundational research.
Dynamic Disc Designs offers lumbar models to help patient education to improve outcomes.When patients understand the basic difference between anterior and posterior structures and their relationship to flexion and extension, patients can avoid aggravating spinal movements to minimize deleterious movements to help reduce inflammation.
Knowledge is power both to the doctor and patient.
