This is an injection for common low back pain from the discs and not arthritis.It is also for neck pain as well. The discs have a small needle inserted into them and then a mixture of Glucosamine and Chonrotin with some othjer agents is injected into the discs. Studies have shown a 60% cure rate, meaning 60% of the patients get some degree of significant improvement long term. Below is the study on this injection. Anti-biotics are given prior to any discogram and risks are generally small. We have done over four thousand of these injections and confirm that the relief is around 60%. These injections do cause some pain for a week or so and the effect of the injection takes around 3 to 4 weeks to work but when it works it is better than surgery.
