Root infiltration and blockade

Periradicular Therapy (PRT)

Severe pain in the neck or lower back may be the cause of disc disease. For a precise diagnosis, a magnetic resonance tomography (MRI) of the affected portion of the spine is first made. If the condition is indicative of disc disease (e.g., inflammation or irritation of the nerve root), its pain could be alleviated by PRT.

In Radiologie Duesseldorf Mitte, a first reconnaissance and counseling session is mandatory before starting a periradicular therapy (PRT). Only after the second appointment will the actual therapy be started.
