A discogram or commonly referred to as a discography is a diagnostic test that uses advanced medical imaging and a contrast solution to assess the underlying cause of spinal pain. Generally, a discogram is for patients who suffer from chronic pain and have tried all other procedures, including physical therapy and pain medication, to reduce the pain.

A discogram is different from other types of medical examinations because it gives a complete overview of your spine and identifies the precise location of your pain. At Pain Zero in Central Ohio, we use discogram diagnostic testing to figure out the primary cause of your painful symptoms. To schedule an appointment, please call one of our convenient locations in Central Ohio.

A discogram is performed on-site, and a member of our team can usually complete the test in about 30 minutes to an hour. Before the test begins, our practitioners ask patients to lie on top of an x-ray table with their back facing upward. To help determine the issue, a member of our team will inject a contrast dye into a specific part of your spinal cord.

Using advanced x-ray technology, our team takes multiple images of your spinal cord to identify the damage or look for any fractures. After completing the discogram, we monitor you for a brief period to ensure you are ready to safely leave and return home. For the next couple of days, you could feel some tenderness near the injection point; however, this should stop after a few days.

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.
