Image-controlled epidural
injection therapy (TESI)

In this minimally invasive treatment process, a thin probe is lead under constant image monitoring (using live digital x-ray technology) to the exact source of the pain within the disc, where a highly effective combination of medications is introduced to calm the inflamed nerves. The pain is relieved within the shortest possible time and, in many cases, disappears completely.

This therapy is also popularly known as PRT.

This treatment is used for slipped discs and nerve root irritation syndrome, i.e. it is deployed with back pains that radiate from a single source with the objective of breaking the vicious circle of pain from the inflammation and swelling of the nerves.
