Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment at Physicians Rehabilitation
Also known as DDD, degenerative disc disease describes the wearing away of the spine’s cushioning discs that sit between each vertebra. These discs feature a soft, gel-like core and a tougher outer shell. As the body ages, spinal discs begin to lose water content and become more brittle, giving way to bone spurs, herniated discs, and other painful problems that can limit mobility and negatively impact quality of life.
While it is impossible to halt the aging process, there are several steps you can take to help slow the progression of degenerative disc disease and reduce painful symptoms. For example, losing excess weight, eating a balanced diet, and engaging in low-impact exercise and stretching can help keep your spine healthy for longer. If these self-care measures don’t reduce your symptoms, however, consider visiting Physicians Rehabilitation for well-rounded degenerative disc disease treatment.
