Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is a condition where one or more discs in the back lose their strength. Discs in your back are located in between vertebrae of the spine and act as cushions and shock absorbers. 

Symptoms

Symptoms of DDD include pain that:

  • can become worse from sitting

  • extends from neck to arms

  • could extend from buttocks to legs

  • primarily impacts the lower back

  • worsens after twisting or bending

  • comes and goes between a few days to several months

Causes

DDD isn't technically a disease, it's a progressive condition that happens over time from wear and tear, or injury. With age, our discs naturally tend to dry out and lose their support and function. DDD can start developing in your 30's to 40's and worsen progressively from there. 

Contact us immediately if you are experiencing DDD so that we can help you identify the source of your pain, discuss treatment options and provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan to help you recover. We accept most insurances which can be viewed here.
