Degenerative Disc

Degenerative Disc Program

Despite its name, degenerative disc disease is not a disease, but a natural occurrence that comes with aging.

The rubbery discs between the vertebrae normally allow for flexing and bending of the back, like shock absorbers. In time, they become worn, and they no longer offer as much protection as before.

Disc degeneration may cause no symptoms, or the pain may be so intense that the individual cannot continue with their daily activities.

The condition starts with damage to the spine, but in time, symptoms can affect other parts of the body. Symptoms usually get worse with age.

The discomfort can range from mild to severe and debilitating. It can lead to osteoarthritis, with pain and stiffness in the back.

The most common early symptom is usually pain and weakness in the back that radiates to another area.

Risks of Degenerative Disc

  • Family history of back pain or musculoskeletal disorders
  • Excessive strain on the low back caused by sports, frequent heavy lifting, or labor-intensive jobs
  • Strain on the lumbar spinal discs due to prolonged sitting and/or poor posture
  • Lack of support for the discs due to weak core muscles

We create a customized treatment package for each of our patients. However, each of our treatment packages include an individualized combination of the following core components.

Our approach has produced partial or significant improvement to all of our patients’ conditions in a relatively short period of time.
