PMID: 35793179.


Chronic low back pain is a leading cause of disability worldwide and its pathophysiology remains poorly understood, a problem exacerbated by the heterogeneity of the patient population with chronic low back pain. Although the intervertebral discs are often implicated in chronic low back pain, studies have demonstrated strong innervation of the vertebral endplates by the basivertebral nerve, therefore making it a possible target for ablation in the treatment of vertebrogenic chronic low back pain.
