Intrathecal therapy, also known as intrathecal drug delivery, is a specialized medical approach that involves the direct delivery of medication into the spinal canal through a small implanted device. This therapy is designed to target specific medical conditions that may not respond adequately to other treatments or where systemic medication delivery poses challenges.
