IDET or intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy is a type of therapy used to treat nerve problems by utilizing the heat. This therapy uses heat to modify the nerve fibers in the spinal discs and disrupt receptor / receiver pain in that area. Strengthen the network disc and close the gaps. In this procedure, an electronic device that converts electricity into heat shaped like coiled wires placed through the incision get into parts of the disc. Electric current is applied so as to produce a temperature of 90 degrees centigrade slowly. This therapy can be carried out on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia.

In some therapeutic experience indicates that the patient may be free from the pain for 6 months. The effects of the therapy in use for a long time can not be determined. A review of existing research has not found evidence that the therapy is effective in treating a pinched nerve due to disc problems. In other words, this therapy is only manipulate the point of pain receptors and does not resolve the root causes are pinching nerves.

Today quite many choices of therapies offered which would have a different approach, but its effectiveness still requires further research. Due to certain circumstances, sometimes therapy is run does not solve the root of the problem.
