Disc degeneration that most commonly occurs in the low back (lumbar spine region) is one of the most common causes of pain in the lower back. Pressure on the spine can make you unable to do certain movements such as leaning forward. After determining that you have disc degeneration, one option Coastal Spine and Pain physicians might suggest is the latest VIA Disc NP procedure.
When wear and tear of intervertebral discs occur, they lose hydration and degenerate. With the VIA Disc NP procedure, processed human nucleus pulposus tissue allograft is injected to supplement and restore hydration to the disc. This procedure is non-surgical and completed by our Coastal Spine and Pain physicians on an outpatient basis. Inquire to see if this procedure is right for you.
