Discogenic Low Back Pain
Discogenic low back pain refers to a condition characterized by chronic pain originating from the intervertebral discs in the lower back. The intervertebral discs are the cushion-like structures located between the vertebrae, and when they degenerate or become damaged, it can lead to persistent and often debilitating pain. Discogenic low back pain typically presents as a dull, aching sensation in the lower back that may radiate to the buttocks and thighs. It can be aggravated by movements, prolonged sitting, or activities that involve bending or twisting the spine. Diagnosis involves a thorough evaluation, including medical history, physical examination, and imaging studies. Treatment approaches for discogenic low back pain may include a combination of pain management techniques, physical therapy, exercise, medication, and in some cases, minimally invasive procedures or surgery, depending on the severity and individual patient factors.
At East Tennessee Spine and Sport, the treatment of discogenic low back pain would involve a comprehensive approach tailored to each patient's needs. Their highly skilled therapists would conduct a thorough assessment to determine the underlying causes and develop personalized treatment plans. This may include a combination of targeted exercises to strengthen the core muscles, improve posture, and alleviate stress on the discs. Manual therapy techniques, such as spinal mobilizations or traction, may be utilized to reduce pain and improve spinal alignment. Additionally, they may incorporate modalities like heat or cold therapy, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound to further alleviate pain and promote healing.
