An accurate diagnosis is the crucial first step to treating any kind of chronic condition. In the slideshow on this page, you'll learn more about discography, also known as discogram. This diagnostic procedure is used to determine if the origin of your lower back or spine pain is one or more discs. Essentially, a sterile liquid is used to pressurize the suspected discs and induce pain. The presence of pain, rather than just pressure, may indicate damage or disease in the disc experiencing the pain. Discography can be an effective way to determine where treatment efforts should be directed.
