Discover the innovative treatment designed to target and alleviate vertebrogenic low back pain without surgery

Understanding Vertebrogenic Pain

Vertebrogenic pain is a type of chronic pain caused by damage to the vertebral endplates, the interface between the disc and the vertebral body. This damage is visible through specific MRI findings known as Modic changes. This type of pain, which is transmitted to the brain via the basivertebral nerve, can significantly impact daily activities due to its chronic nature. It’s a common yet frequently overlooked source of chronic low back pain, requiring a specialized approach for effective treatment.

How Vertebrogenic Pain is Described

Vertebrogenic pain presents with low back pain and is confirmed by Modic changes on MRI. Those who benefit from the Intracept Procedure often report a deep, central low back pain exacerbated by activities such as physical exertion, extended periods of sitting, and motions involving bending or lifting. This description underscores the specific nature of vertebrogenic pain and its impact on daily life.

Relief of Chronic Vertebrogenic Low Back Pain

The Intracept Procedure is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment designed to directly address vertebrogenic pain by ablating the basivertebral nerve. It offers a unique solution for patients who have not found relief through conventional treatments, involving a small incision and guided by imaging to ensure precision. This procedure stands out for its ability to provide durable pain relief without the need for implants or altering the structural integrity of the spine, supported by clinical studies demonstrating its effectiveness and safety.
