Degenerative Disc Disease

Disc degeneration is the term used for a common cause of lower back pain due to thinning of the disc.

As the disc thins, the vertebrae above it begins to settle on the one below it, and the spinal canal space narrows. As this occurs, the joints of the spine also settle upon each other, creating joint irritation that can be painful.

Although this is termed a “disease,” it’s really not.  Rather it’s another challenge associated with the aging process.

Treatment

If your examination shows your back pain is due to degenerative disc disease, we use a variety of manipulative, mobilization and decompressive techniques to widen the canal space, drop the intradiscal pressure and increase the disc height to relieve pain.

All treatment provided at Deutsch Chiropractic Clinic is gentle, safe and clinically proven to reduce pain and improve mobility.

Dr. Fred and Dr. Kathleen understand degenerative disc disease and have experience working with patients like you to relieve pain.
