  • FT Irwin question pt 1

    Hi and thanks for a great presentation!

    Dr. F,

    You state that disc related back pain is only 2-5%.
    Could you site a reference for this? How is it determined that a bulging or herniated disc IS the cause?

    PS when are you coming back to Europe?
    Best

    This is a difficult one to answer confidently. To quote from Hartvigsen et al:

    Although some imaging and clinical findings increase the likelihood that pain is arising from the intervertebral disc (with the reference standard of discography), no investigation has accurately identified a disc problem as contributing to an individual’s pain; there is no widely accepted reference standard for discogenic pain
    In practice, being able to more confidently state that symptoms are related to a disk herniation, for example, would involve an individual having symptom distribution or neurological deficits that specifically correlate to the anatomic level of the disk in question.

        I was unaware of this post and have never been contacted with / am not affiliated with their site. With that said, we're glad they are spreading the word.
