Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is one of the most common causes of low back pain and neck pain. Discs are located between each column of the spine. When the disc degenerates it puts pressure on surrounding nerves. This results in symptoms of pain and/or radiating weakness or numbness in the limbs. If you’ve been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease do not be alarmed. The term sounds worse than it is. It is not a disease and does not necessarily mean it will continue to degenerate and get worse. The term is actually supposed to describe the process of the disc degenerating over time. Disc degeneration is truly a natural consequence of aging. There is no escaping it. Over time all living beings will experience some degree of degeneration and its accompanying discomforts.
DDD can be treated holistically and naturally with a combination of healthy lifestyle changes, and chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care is an excellent method of reducing the pain associated with DDD. At HealthMax Chiro we will provide gentle spinal adjustments to help improve the function of your spine. Our goal is to restore your spine to a healthy state and bring you relief from pain. Spinal adjustments will relieve pressure on the nerves, and your pain will be reduced. We will look to see if any of the spine mechanics have been disturbed and address the underlying issue. If the degenerated discs are putting pressure on the nerves, we will provide relief. Even though DDD is common, and basically unavoidable, you can be in control of how much pain you want to tolerate. Enjoy life more fully by choosing safe, natural, and effective chiropractic care.

I had been suffering with severe migraine headaches and neck pain. It affected my work performance and my home life. I saw multiple doctors, visited the emergency room, was prescribed medication, had blood tests and had a CT scan with no results. When I first came to HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson, they were very welcoming and showed real concern for my condition. They took the time to do a full exam, take digital x-rays and show me what was going on in my spine that was causing the headaches. The adjustments and low tech therapeutic exercises made me feel much, much better. I haven’t had a migraine or headache since the beginning of August! The Dr and the team at HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson are absolutely wonderful and I recommend them to all of my friends. I don’t believe I would have gotten better if I had not come here.
“Having a very active lifestyle I know the importance of Chiropractic Care. Weightlifting activity, kids and after a couple of car accidents, it has become more prevalent. Finding the right Chiropractor that understands your body and can implement a care plan can sometimes be hard to find. I have seen numerous Chiropractors over the last 15 years but most were just back-crackers at best. After coming to HealthMax the first time, I knew I had found the right place. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for proper treatment.”
