Intradiscal PRP is intended for patients who have not achieved pain relief through more conservative approaches (medication, behaviour modification, and physical therapy). Intradiscal PRP is shown to be beneficial for patients suffering from pain that originates from the spinal disc. Intradiscal PRP therapy involves an injection of special plasma, made out of the patient’s own blood, into painful spinal discs. First, blood is taken from the patient and separated into its components. Then the platelet-rich part of the blood is injected into the painful on: Far Hills Avenue, Centerville, , OH. Est.

Vivian MM, BS, FAFMM, in Pain Procedures in Clinical Practice (Third Edition), Efficacy of Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy. Intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET) is, by far, the most studied intradiscal therapy. Studies on IDET have been confined to the treatment of IDD. Intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET) is a treatment devised to relieve the pain of internal disc disruption. It involves threading into the painful disc a flexible wire electrode, which is used to heat the tissues of the posterior annulus fibrosus in an effort to relieve the pain. Intradiscal electrothermic therapy (IDET) is a relatively new, minimally invasive treatment for spinal disc-related chronic low back pain. This type of persistent disc pain is thought to be caused by nerve fibers that have grown from their normal location in the outer layers of the disc, reaching into the disc interior.

Rajeev K. Patel, in The Comprehensive Treatment of the Aging Spine, Intradiscal Injection of a “Naked” Biologically Active Factor. Percutaneous intradiscal injection would provide the most straightforward approach to delivery of an active biologic factor to the disc cells (see Figure ).Although direct application of potentially beneficial factors, mostly proteins like growth. At Advanced Pain Consultants, we provide state-of-the-art pain treatments. One of the innovative techniques we use to treat persistent low back pain is called intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET). This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses controlled levels of thermal energy (heat) to treat damaged spinal discs (the cushions between vertebrae). If you’ve been suffering from chronic low back pain despite medications, physical therapy, chiropractic, and injections, and are hoping to avoid surgery, you may be a candidate for intradiscal PRP. For initial consultation and to discuss intradiscal PRP, please contact OSNI to book . This heat contracts and thickens the collagen of the disc wall, and raises the temperature of the nerve endings. Therapy may result in contraction or closure of the disc wall fissures, a reduction in the bulge of the inner disk material, and a desensitization of the pain sensors within the disc.
