Degenerated Disc

What is a Degenerated Disc?

A Degenerated Disc refers to the condition where spinal discs undergo wear and tear, leading to reduced flexibility, diminished disc height, and potential pain. This degeneration is a natural part of aging but can be exacerbated by factors like injury, repetitive strain, or genetic predisposition.

Symptoms of a Degenerated Disc

Symptoms vary widely with degenerated disc disease. Some individuals may experience no symptoms at all, while others suffer from chronic back or neck pain. Common indicators include pain that worsens with sitting, bending, lifting, or twisting; occasional tingling or numbness in the extremities; and a decrease in pain when walking or moving.
