WE TREAT DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE

Degenerative disc disease is a term used to describe the normal changes in your spinal discs as you age. Spinal discs are soft, compressible discs that separate the interlocking bones (vertebrae) that make up the spine. The discs act as shock absorbers for the spine, allowing it to flex, bend, and twist.

 

Degenerative disc disease can take place throughout the spine, but it most often occurs in the discs in the lower back (lumbar region) and the neck (cervical region).

April C.
"I called on 10/10/16 around 1pm for an appointment for my husband who had never been seen at the office before. He threw his back out and was in an unspeakable amount of pain, and hardly able to move. Doc was able to get us in at 2:30. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the personalized care my husband received."

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

Degenerative disc disease may result in back or neck pain.

 Many people have no pain, while others with the same amount of disc damage have severe pain that limits their activities.  An affected disc in the neck area may result in neck or arm pain, while an affected disc in the lower back may result in pain in the back, buttock, or leg. The pain often gets worse with movements such as bending over, reaching up, or twisting.

 

The pain may start after a major injury (such as from a car accident), a minor injury (such as a fall from a low height), or a normal motion (such as bending over to pick something up). It may also start gradually for no known reason and get worse over time.
