Degenerative disc disease occurs when natural changes in the spine result in pain. Over time, spinal discs undergo wear and breakdown. Although this normal process typically doesn’t cause discomfort, experiencing pain due to worn-out discs is an indication.
Spinal discs lose water and become thinner as you grow older. While usually not painful, this loss of water reduces padding for the vertebrae, potentially causing discomfort.
Everyday stress and injuries can cause small tears in the outer walls of spinal discs. These walls contain numerous nerves that, when touched, elicit significant pain. Moreover, if the outer walls tear, the inner core may bulge or slip out of place, further exacerbating nerve-related pain.
If you suspect degenerative disc disease, a skilled chiropractor will first ascertain if a disc-related issue is indeed present. Often, disc problems can be mistaken for other spinal conditions. After thoroughly evaluating your medical history and pain symptoms, the chiropractor will employ various techniques tailored to the disease’s severity. Common treatments include spinal manipulation and therapeutic massage.
