Periradicular (PRT) therapy

Periradicular therapy (PRT) has become a part of routine treatment of pain for several years, especially chronic back pain, which is treated in a targeted manner. The therapy, which can also be performed on an outpatient basis, is intended primarily for our patients with long-term back pain who have not experienced an appropriate positive response with medication and physiotherapy.

To reduce the symptoms, the doctor will inject an anti-inflammatory drug near the inflamed nerve root in the spine. Due to the use of a local anesthetic, PRT is completely painless. The optimal position of the drug application during the treatment is regulated with the guidance of a CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Ćoćić will explain thoroughly the exact course of the procedure in advance.
