Common Questions About Degenerative Disc Disease
- How common is Degenerative Disc Disease? Disc degeneration occurs to some degree in everyone as the body ages. However, disease progression that is chronically painful, or progressive is considered disc disease. This form is less common than common age-related degeneration, more painful, yet is still regularly diagnosed by primary care doctors. The problem is that degeneration is often accelerated in people who have uncorrected vertebral subluxations (misalignments.) This occurs because the misalignment caused abnormal stress on the disc which causes it to prematurely break down very similar to a car tire. When the alignment of your car is off and you continue to drive without correcting the misalignment, the tire balds or wears away unevenly. This is often the case we see in our office with a patient who has neglected their alignment for some time. They experience degenerative disc disease that is more localized to only a few of the spinal discs versus age-related degeneration that can cause a more global disc degenerative process across all the spinal discs.
- Is my back pain only going to get worse over time? It does not have to. Degenerative disc disease can be painful because the discs between your vertebra protect you from nerve pain and when they degenerate your nerves are more at risk of becoming compressed or irritated. However, there are many modalities for improving your pain levels and mobility over time including spinal decompression therapy.
- What are my options for improving my mobility? We provide corrective chiropractic care, spinal decompression therapy, deep tissue laser, therapeutic massage, nutritional counseling, and physical therapy to strengthen the back. All of these approaches can significantly reduce your pain levels and the progression of degenerative disc disease. This will also increase your overall mobility as you age. Many people turn their approach to their health around after their diagnoses and actually improve their health with help from our skilled chiropractors.
