The procedure consists of an intervertebral disc puncture, where the doctor introduces a device with a needle to the affected intervertebral disc. This intervention is very easy and takes less than half an hour. The patient is conscious throughout the therapy, being under local anaesthesia.
Transforaminal nerve root block
A transforaminal nerve root block is a method used to treat neck and back pain. It can also be successfully used to diagnose the specific source of nerve pain.
