A diagnostic procedure in which x-ray dye is injected under gentle pressure into the discs of the spine.
- The discogram is done to locate the specific discs, if any, that are contributing to your pain. The results are then used to determine if more advanced treatment is right for you. The discogram is not a treatment for pain and should not be done unless you are seriously considering surgery or similar treatment(s).
- Recovery time: Following the procedure you may experience some increased discomfort for about 2-3 days.
