Degenerative Disc Disease

As an age-related condition, degenerative disc disease develops when one or more spinal discs break down and deteriorates. This condition is common among individuals over the age of 60 since the discs typically start to shrink and lose their flexibility as we get older. Since they serve as shock absorbers for the spine, when the discs deteriorate, it leads to discomfort and pain in the back and/or neck. Our team of pain management experts at Tricity Pain Associates works with patients who have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease to provide optimal treatment to alleviate pain and the other associated symptoms, including decreased mobility, numbness and tingling, and muscle weakness. By expertly evaluating your condition, we can create a treatment plan that is the most effective for you and your needs.

Disc Disease Treatment

Though a disc cannot be fully regenerated after it has deteriorated, there are several forms of treatment that can be useful in treating the pain associated with degenerative disc disease. Some less invasive forms of treatment include anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, spinal mobilization, and heat/cold therapy. In more severe cases, surgery could be the best option for receiving long-term results.
