Treating Degenerative Disc Disease in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

One of the most common causes of low back pain due to the correlation as part of our natural aging process and also one of the most misunderstood conditions Degenerative Disc Disease is typically a weakening of one or more vertebral discs, which normally act as a cushion between the vertebrae bones. Although most people will display signs of changes in their discs over time, not all people will experience or develop symptoms.

Symptoms

Pain typically occurs at the site of the affected disc and varies in intensity from person to person. Some people have no to little pain, while others pain will be so severe that it limits their activities. The pain may also radiate down the affected limb whether it’s a cervical or lumbar injury resulting in arm or leg pain. The pain is often worse with movements such as bending, twisting, reaching or sitting.

Treatment

There are a wide variety of treatment options for this condition. It will depend widely on the underlying patient’s symptoms and the severity of the injury itself. Conservative treatment options are available such as pain medications and anti-inflammatories, as well as physical therapy and injections. Further symptoms or problems may lead to surgical options.
