It is only through the understanding of lumbar spine pathophysiology and its clinical correlates that specific rational treatment for patients becomes possible. Intervertebral disc disease (IDD) is a progressive, chronic, degenerative disease. Over time, the degeneration worsens and ultimately becomes irreversible. The pathogenesis of IDD involves a complex interplay of inflammatory, immunological, and pressure-related processes. Current treatments for IDD, proposed in most ´consensus protocols… Expand
