Degenerative Disc Disease


 

Patients who suffer from degenerative disc disease have problems with the cushioning discs in between their spinal vertebrae. Whether it’s because of a back injury or wear and tear on the body, these discs begin to weaken and degrade. This causes inflammation in the spine as well as instability, leading to severe back pain. Studies show that around 30 percent of people between the ages of 30 to 50 may experience some form of degenerative disc disease. If you have degenerative disc disease, you may experience back spasms as your spine attempts to stabilize your back. Additionally, you may have chronic lower back pain which worsens when sitting, twisting, lifting, or bending. In order to give you lower back pain relief, we can adjust your spine to make sure it is in the proper alignment. Additionally, our pain management doctors can recommend exercises to strengthen and support your back. For older adults, degenerative disc disease is a big fear. As you age, the intervertebral discs in your spine begin to break down due to overuse or years of strain. Unfortunately, this leads to a number of uncomfortable symptoms, include a loss of flexibility, poor shock absorption, and less elasticity. Chiropractic treatment for degenerative disc disease encompasses a wide range of techniques. First, we will use spinal adjustments to get your back properly aligned and restore movement. Next, we may also use special flexion-distraction and instrument-assisted manipulation techniques to further increase flexibility and mobility. We will also use ultrasound and electrical stimulation along with several manual therapy techniques, such as trigger point therapy, stretching exercises, massage, and soft tissue therapy, to give you complete pain relief.
