Provocative Discography



Provocative Discographyis a diagnostic procedure in which a needle is placed into a lumbar or cervical disc to identify whether there is an internal disc disruption.


During the procedure, performed under live fluoroscopic imaging, contrast is injected directly into the identified discs. We can then identify the internal anatomy of the disc, as well as whether there is a reproduction of the patient’s pain pattern.

Provider with machine


When the needle is inside the joint, the doctor injects the medicine. It’s a gel-like fluid. It supplements your synovial fluid. That’s the natural fluid in your knee that lubricates the joint. The medicine will help your joint move more smoothly. And that should reduce your pain
