Degenerative Disc Disease-Low Back
Click to View Products for Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is the natural progression of aging. As we age the intervertebral discs of the spine lose elasticity and the ability to absorb shock, while the gel filled center of the intervertebral disc also begins to shrink as it dries out.
The structure surrounding the disc (annulus fibrosis) also becomes brittle and the vertebrae begin to develop spurs. As the disc begins to age it compresses from vertical forces. This compression leads to a narrowing which leads to pressure on the nerves and the subsequent back pain that can radiate down the leg.
