Intradiscal Nucleolysis Treatment

What is Intradiscal Nucleolysis Treatment?

Intradiscal Nucleolysis treatment is a procedure in which chondrolytic substances or other substances are injected into the inner portion of the spinal disc (nucleus pulposus) in order to reduce pressure and pain caused by herniated discs. These injections reduce pain and inflammation with a blend of nutrient ingredients that support tissue regeneration and activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. This treatment is especially helpful for patients struggling with chronic pain and it is a safe and effective treatment.

Keep in mind that Intradiscal Nucleolysis is not a lifelong treatment, but is simply intended to support your body while you get your health back on track. It is a non-surgical, injection-based treatment used to treat chronic pain caused by disc herniation. This treatment is an excellent choice for athletes or anyone that would like to restore their mobility and get relief from joint and muscle pain. Intradiscal Nucelolysis treatment also provides many benefits for patients, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • Improved flexibility
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Reduced arthritis symptoms
  • Improved mobility

How Intradiscal Nucleolysis Treatment Treats Disc Herniations

Intradiscal Nucleolysis injections can be directly injected into the nucleus pulposus of the herniated spinal disc. These injections provide long-term relief without the need for painkillers or surgery. 

Intradiscal Nucleolysis treatment usually involves a patient receiving two to four injections in a specific site where they are experiencing pain. This treatment takes about 10-15 minutes and may require a second treatment within one to two weeks. However, some patients experience relief after only one treatment.

These injections are administered through a very small gauge needle in order to minimize injection site pain. However, patients may opt for numbing cream if their existing pain is significant.

As patients respond to treatment, they will likely require fewer injections and smaller doses over time. Each patient’s needs are different, and Intradiscal Nucleolysis accommodates for this by allowing patients to dictate when and how often they receive injections. In addition to this, it’s a treatment that works by activating the body’s natural healing processes, it’s non-surgical, and it’s non-addictive.
