Degenerative Disc Disease
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.
