Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) refers to symptoms of back or neck pain caused by wear-and-tear on a spinal disc. In some cases, degenerative disc disease also causes weakness, numbness and shooting pains in the arms or legs. DDD typically consists of a low-level chronic pain with intermittent episodes of more severe pain. Treatment for mild to moderate pain, can include medications, physical therapy, and chiropractic care. For more severe cases a procedure called a spinal fusion surgery is used where two or more vertebrae are fused into one single structure. The goal is to stop movement between the two bones and prevent back pain.
