VIA Disc Allograft Treatments
We Are Excited To Announce That We Are Now Offering Via Disc Allograft Treatments At Both Of Our Physical Locations!
Age-related wear and tear of the intervertebral disc can cause loss of hydration and degeneration. VIA Disc NP is a non-surgical option that supplements the degenerated intervertebral disc.
If you are suffering from chronic lower back pain caused by degenerative disc disease (DDD) or other such related conditions, VIA Disc is a potential new treatment option. It aims to not only address pain relief, but to also reverse the damage caused by the discs at the source of the problem. It is considered to be on the cutting edge of degenerative disc treatment options, and is also covered under Medicare.

Is Disc Degeneration The Same As Any Other Back Pain?
The intervertebral disc consists of three regions: the annulus fibrosus, the nucleus pulposus, and the cartilaginous endplate. The annulus fibrosus is a fibrous outer ring of collagen fibers that functions as the primary load-bearing component of the intervertebral disc.
Biomechanical alterations over time – such as cracks and fissures within your disc – through strain, age, or injury, strains the nerves and puts focal pressure on the spine, ultimately resulting in pain. Discogenic lower back pain can be diagnosed via a combination of documented patient symptoms, physical examination, and medical imaging. It differs from other, more common varieties of spinal pain.
Via Disc Offers A Non-surgical Route Of Pain Addressment.
VIA Disc is an injectable allograft that uses allogeneic tissue. It has been shown to be an effective therapy within clinical trials, repairing damage to degenerative discs and providing documented pain relief as well as improved mobility. Although it is nonsurgical, it is still considered to be an intermediate level of intervention.
How Does It Work?
VIA Disc is administered via injection. A 22g needle is used to deliver allogeneic disc material into the targeted repair site, and the biological material initiates a healing process. Over the course of several weeks after the injection, the graft will ideally begin to supplement the damaged disc, prompting regenerative action.
How Long Will It Take For Me To See Results?
It may take several weeks before the effects are noticeable, but throughout the course of your treatment you will follow up and consult with your physio team at our clinic.
