Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is a very common cause of low back and neck pain. This pain is caused by wear and tear on the spinal disc. More often than not, degenerative disc disease is associated with chronic low level pain with intermittent episodes of severe pain. The severe episodes can results in weakness, numbness, and radicular pain. This condition can typically be managed with non-surgical treatment methods such as physical therapy, medication management and spinal injections.
