Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) Treatment with Our Chiropractor

Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is a description of the slow deterioration of the discs in the spine. The most common reason for degenerative disc disease is the aging process. As individual's age, the discs lose fluid and compress, which can put pressure on the nerve roots. Our chiropractor can recommend a treatment program to manage your symptoms.

Causes and Symptoms of Degenerative Disc Disease

While the aging process is the most common reason for DDD, it can also be caused by an injury to the back and poor posture. If you have degenerative disc disease, it can increase the progression of other back ailments, including spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and osteoarthritis.

Degenerative disc disease causes pain in the lower back and neck, muscle weakness and numbness in the arms and legs. Individuals usually notice less pain while they are walking and more pain when they sit for extended periods of time.

Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment

Our Midtown chiropractor offers degenerative disc disease treatment that will help lower your pain and improve your mobility without medications. To reduce pain during flare-ups, our chiropractor may recommend ice and heat therapy. To help your discs refill with fluid and regain their elasticity, our chiropractor offers spinal decompression.

Spinal Decompression for Degenerative Disc Disease

Stretching the affected sections of your spine with spinal decompression for degenerative disc disease can help lower your symptoms by increasing the spaces between your vertebrae so that your discs have room to refill with fluid. This helps increase their cushioning ability and can take the pressure off your nerve roots. Some individuals notice a difference after their first treatment, but it may take many treatments with our spinal decompression chiropractor in Midtown before your symptoms are significantly reduced.
