Discography is a diagnostic procedure to help identify the source of back or neck pain.  Discs are cushions located between the bones that make up your spine.  Normally, discs act as shock-absorbers to protect the bones in the spine. Aging or trauma can cause discs to break down, leading to pain.  There are many methods for treating disc pain, but if treatments are unsuccessful after a period of time, a discogram may be ordered to determine the exact disc that is creating a problem.  From there, a more appropriate treatment plan can be formulated.
