This chapter focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of discogenic low back pain. Discogenic low back pain is a prevalent condition that affects a large percentage of the adult population. Diagnosis and treatment of this condition remain challenging despite ongoing advances. Provocation lumbar discography has allowed for more accurate identification of painful discs than conventional imaging techniques. Current research focusing on regenerative treatment options may hold promise for the future.
