Via Disc Procedure

Via Disc Procedure at Nexus Pain Center

As we age, our spine endures constant wear and tear, as well as physiological changes. This can have an impact on the discs that separate the vertebrae in our spine. Over time, these discs can become damaged, rupture, become brittle, or misshapen. This condition is known as degenerative disc disease (DDD), which is often age-related and refers to the degenerative changes that the discs undergo.

If you are suffering from lower back pain caused by degenerative disc disease, there is a cutting-edge solution available at Nexus Pain Center called Via Disc. This innovative treatment aims to relieve pain and internally repair damaged discs. Nexus Pain Center is a leading provider of this non-invasive treatment, ensuring our patients receive the best care possible.

Understanding the Via Disc Procedure

Degenerative disc disease can cause significant discomfort and affect daily activities. Via Disc offers a targeted approach to address the root cause of the pain by repairing the damaged spinal discs. This treatment has shown promising results, providing patients with long-lasting pain relief and improved functionality.

The Via Disc procedure is a type of therapy that utilizes injections into a damaged disc to promote healing and self-repair. This treatment involves the use of a specialized preparation system to deliver allogeneic disc material into the damaged area. Over the course of several weeks, the injected material will gradually supplement the disc, leading to regeneration and repair.

Benefits of the Via Disc Procedure

Via Disc offers a non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments such as spinal fusion or artificial disc replacement. This treatment specifically addresses the root cause of disc degeneration, rather than simply managing the symptoms. Via Disc injections not only provide long-term benefits, such as improved mobility and pain reduction, but also minimize the risks and recovery time associated with more invasive procedures.

The potential Via Disc side effects are minimal, as the procedure is relatively safe, utilizing advanced techniques and technology. Via Disc promotes the regeneration of damaged discs, allowing patients to experience a significant reduction in pain and an improvement in their overall spinal health.

Our Approach to Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

The Nexus Pain Center is a pain management clinic offering cutting edge treatments, from medication management to minimally invasive procedures. If you are interested in peripheral nerve stimulation, we will provide a comprehensive consultation to ensure you are a good candidate for this treatment. On the day of treatment, doctors will utilize ultrasound or x-ray to place a tiny electrode onto the skin near one of the peripheral nerves. The device will produce a rapid pulse that the patient may feel as a tingle sensation. This mild sensation essentially replaces the pain that was previously felt. The device can be controlled via an app or controller to adjust the electric pulse intensity.

Via Disc NP Allograft: A Closer Look

The nucleus pulposus (NP) is the central core of the spinal disc, composed of a gelatinous substance made of water and collagen. This structure enables the disc to endure the forces of compression and rotation. Due to aging or injury, this inner core can become dehydrated and damaged.

VIA Disc NP is designed to be used to supplement the loss of nucleus pulposus tissue in degenerated spinal discs. An allograft refers to tissue that is harvested from a human donor and transplanted. This tissue is made of dehydrated particles of the nucleus pulposus, from the human donor. Via Disc treatment uses the dehydrated nucleus pulposus particles and injects the substance into the recipients to improve their symptoms.

Once injected, the graft gradually integrates with the existing disc tissue, providing essential nutrients and promoting regeneration. Over the course of several weeks, the disc begins to rebuild itself, restoring its function and reducing symptoms such as pain and limited mobility. This groundbreaking therapy has shown promising results in clinical studies, with a significant percentage of patients experiencing improvements in disc health and overall well-being.

The efficacy of VIA Disc is supported by scientific evidence and patient testimonials. Studies have demonstrated a substantial increase in disc height and hydration, indicating successful healing and repair. Moreover, patients have reported a reduction in pain intensity, improved range of motion, and a return to everyday activities they once thought impossible.

Preparing for Your Via Disc Procedure

Patients might encounter slight discomfort and tenderness following the procedure, which is normal. Patients may also be advised to limit physical activity for 3-4 days after the procedure. However, most patients resume regular, low-impact daily activities. Oral medication, including pain reliever, steroid or muscle relaxer, may be recommended to ease any pain or discomfort. To further enhance the patient’s comfort following the procedure, your doctor may recommend an ice pack, back brace or physical therapy.

Coverage for Via Disc injections can vary depending on the insurance provider. Many insurance plans offer coverage for this treatment, especially if other more conservative treatments have not been successful. Individuals who have Medicare may be required to meet specific criteria before receiving coverage. It is advisable to check with your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage available.
