Degenerative disc disease is not really a disease at all, but it is a natural result of aging and wear and tear over time on the elements of the spine. The discs of your spine wear and break down with repeated use, allowing the vertebrae to squeeze closer together, pinch nerves and cause a range of problems. Full Range Spine & Ortho provides degenerative disc disease treatment at all four of our locations in and around Los Angeles.
Degenerative disc disease is a consequence of aging. The rubbery discs between the vertebrae that make up the spine serve as shock absorbers, protecting the spine and back against impact and constant use. This rubbery substance often wears away over time. This condition is often not detected in the beginning stages. Common early symptoms include pain and weakness in the back, often radiating out to different parts of the body.
The discomfort from symptoms can range from mild to extremely painful and debilitating. Pain can also seem worse when sitting, standing, turning, lifting, walking or changing positions to relieve pain. Prolonged degenerative disc disease can lead to further complications, such as osteoarthritis of the spine and back.
