Back and neck pain can be debilitating and affect every part of your life, from work to hobbies to general well-being. If you’ve been suffering from persistent back or neck pain, and it doesn’t seem to go away with conventional treatment, it’s time to consider a different solution.
Freedom Spine & Pain Center offers customized treatment plans featuring the game-changing VIA Disc NP Allograft, designed to provide relief from degenerated intervertebral discs.
How Does VIA Disc NP Work?
VIA Disc NP Allograft is an innovative treatment option that addresses the root cause of back and neck pain, which often stems from degenerated intervertebral discs.
Using tissue from a human cadaveric donor, VIA Disc NP is what physicians call a “dehydrated nucleus pulposus particulate.” Put more simply, the treatment replenishes lost hydration in your intervertebral discs. This allograft is delivered via a 22G spine needle directly into your degenerated disc, supplementing it and offering potential long-term relief.
What to Expect with VIA Disc NP?
Undergoing the VIA Disc NP procedure is a straightforward experience, but preparation is very important as well. Pre-procedure antibiotics may be used to reduce the risk of infection. During the procedure, your physician may administer local anesthesia or moderate sedation. A computer tomography scan, also known as fluoroscopy, guides the physician to ensure precise delivery of the VIA Disc NP.
After the procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain or soreness from the increased pressure within the disc. That’s why listening to your doctor’s post-procedure instructions is vital. Those instructions may include limiting strenuous activities for up to 72 hours and taking prescribed medications for pain relief.
Post-Procedure Care and Follow-up
Your physician will typically schedule a follow-up appointment two to four weeks after the procedure to assess your condition. Additional follow-ups might also be needed, depending on how your body responds to the treatment. During this time, you may also be advised to use an ice pack, wear a back brace, or undergo physical therapy.
