What is Degenerative
Disc Disease?

Degenerative Disc Disease refers to a common condition that affects the intervertebral discs of the spine. These discs are soft, rubbery cushions that act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae, providing flexibility and allowing for smooth movement of the spine. However, with age and wear and tear, these discs can degenerate and undergo changes that lead to Degenerative Disc Disease.

The primary cause of Degenerative Disc Disease is the natural aging process, which results in the loss of fluid content within the discs, making them less flexible and more prone to damage. As a result, the discs may become thinner, develop cracks, or develop small tears. These changes can cause pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the affected area of the spine.
